The Washington Redskins have been open to moving their training facility from Ashburn, Va. to somewhere else. Prince George's County evidently wants to be considered for that "somewhere else." A report in the Washington Business Journal indicates that the county has submitted a proposal to the Maryland Stadium Authority to allot some funds for a study to determine if Prince George's County is an appropriate new venue.
The Maryland Stadium Authority on Tuesday will consider a request to allot $25,000 for a market and economic analysis of moving the Redskins from Loudoun County to Prince George's.
In a letter seeking the study, Prince George's County Acting Chief Administrative Officer Michael Errico indicated the county was "approached" about the possibility of housing the team's headquarters and training facilities, in addition to the existing FedEx Field in Landover.
Moving the facility to PG County will put the Redskins closer to FedEx Field. It would be bad news for Loudoun County, which makes a lot of money off the current facility, but the Redskins have been open about wanting an upgrade to the run-down facility in Ashburn. No final decisions have yet been made.
