Redskins coming to Richmond

Governor Bob McDonnell announced today that, the Redskins will begin working with the City of Richmond to identify a suitable training camp site to hold summer practice in Richmond, starting in 2013.

The Washington Redskins will move their summer training camp to Richmond for an eight-year run beginning in 2013

Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones commented, “The Washington Redskins bringing their summer training camp to Richmond is beyond exciting. This will have a great economic impact for Richmond and the region! I thank the owners and senior executives of the Redskins for their ongoing work with us to determine the right facilities to meet the team’s needs. I thank Governor McDonnell for his leadership. Hail to the Redskins!”

The Redskins’ decision to bring the camp to Richmond was less about available facilities than the opportunity to get the team away from home in the preseason and to market the team to an area that encompasses Hampton Roads and southern Virginia as well as the greater Richmond region, according to Suzette P. Denslow, chief of staff to the mayor..

"They think Richmond opens them up to a broader market and a market that is supportive of the Redskins."

The team is currently holding its training camp in Ashburn.

“In conjunction with the governor’s office and the City of Richmond, we also look forward to finding a great summer training camp facility in the city for both our team and our fans to enjoy,” Bruce Allen, Redskins executive vice president and general manager, said in the release.

The City of Richmond is considering a number of locations for Redskins summer practice and will make further announcements regarding that process in the days and weeks ahead.
