Redskins Move Back Into Upgraded Facility

Posted Aug 20, 2013

While the Redskins held training camp in Richmond, Va., construction crews were hard at work finishing up renovations on the weight, training and dining rooms at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Va.

On Tuesday, the team returned to Redskins Park for the first time since minicamp and took advantage of the newly-renovated and expanded weight room, training room and kitchen.

Construction began in the spring but went into full-gear when the team traveled south to Richmond for training camp. Construction is now complete and the facility is once again fully-operational.

Redskins general manager Bruce Allen toured the facility with Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder and head coach Mike Shanahan on Friday evening to get a first look at the progress.

Allen credited the ownership for their commitment to making “constant upgrades” to the team’s three facilities.

“The inspiration behind the renovations was [Redskins owner] Dan Snyder’s commitment to giving this team the very best,” Allen told Redskins.com.

Since 2010, the Redskins have also made the following improvements to their three facilities:

--Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center constructed in Richmond, Va.

--Redskins Park upgrades:

  • Regulation-size indoor practice field and facility
  • “Hail To The Redskins Walk” outside the locker room
  • Infrastructure upgrade to fully digital playbooks and film study

--FedExField upgrades:

  • New sod field and improved field drainage
  • NRG solar power installation
  • HD video and scoreboards
  • State-of-the-art sound system
  • Fan party decks
  • “Hail To The Redskins Walk” on club level concourse
  • Redskins legacy signage around playing field walls

To get a closer look at the facilities, check out the full gallery.
