“It has to be a jewel,” Allen said of the future home for the burgundy and gold. “We have a beautiful plan. It’s been well-received by everyone who’s seen it.”

Washington plans to leave its current home, FedEx Field, after its lease expires in 2027. Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe has stated The Commonwealth is “vigorously pursuing” the Redskins stadium project.
