Governor McAuliffe thinks Virginia is the perfect place for the new Redskins’ stadium due to open in 2027.
“I think we are the best place for the team,” McAuliffe said on Thursday. “Every player lives in Virginia. … Sixty-six percent of the season-ticket holders are Virginians, so it makes sense – if we can structure a deal that makes sense for us, the taxpayers, and is good for the Redskins – then that’s a win-win situation. We are the ideal place.”
Redskins President Bruce Allen said earlier that the team had made progress in determining a location but the new stadium but he had “no announcements at this time.”
The Governor mentioned possible sites along the Metro Silver line which runs to Dulles Airport and eventually into Loudoun county. Most Redskins’ players live in Loudoun.
