City Stadium will likely be the site for Redskins training camp next summer.

The Washington Redskins will be have a new home from training camp starting in 2013. As first reported by SB Nation's Hogs Haven and confirmed on Wednesday by local ESPN 950 radio, the team will decamp for Richmond, Va. starting next season.

The team is expected to make an official announcement later on Wednesday.

Currently, the Redskins hold their training camp at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Va. The Richmond facility will likely center on City Stadium, which was formerly used by the Richmond Spiders. Rumors circulated about the possible move following visits from team officials earlier in the year. That happened on March 7, when most of the football world was distracted with bounties and Peyton Manning's looming free agent decision.

This year's training camp schedule has yet to be announced. Camp typically starts for NFL teams during the last weekend in July.
