At long last, the Washington Redskins will have their indoor practice facility. The team announced that they have broken ground on a new indoor field at Redskins Park, and it will be completed later in the fall.
The practice facility has been a priority for Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen, especially after having several practices canceled or moved indoors last season due to inclement weather. The Redskins' facility had been outdoor-only.
"Our new state-of-the-art facility will help our team prepare for games and will allow the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation to hold special events," GM Bruce Allen said in the press release. "Although we embrace playing all of our games outdoors, our new facility will ensure that our game preparation will not be disrupted due to inclement weather."
The facility will be an air structure built over a full-size field, according to the release.
CORRECTION: This previously stated the facility would be at FedEx Field. It is at Redskins Park.
