An issue has come up in THE NATION’S CAPITAL that involves a lot of people and it will change the scope of economic development.
The question of whether THE WASHINGTON Washington Football Team will move back into Washington, D.C..
The second question is whether THE WASHINGTON Washington Football Team will move back into their old stadium – RFK Stadium in S.E.
It’s good to have the team back in the City by which they are named, but are they going to the Old Stadium that they moved out of? NO!!!
They moved out because it was too small and too old!!!
Mayor Muriel Bowser has been reportedly trying to bring NFL football back to D.C., specifically to the RFK site the Burgundy and Gold once called home. In early December, The Washington Post reported that the club was working with both the Mayor’s office as well as Republican Congressional members to fit a provision into the federal spending bill that would loosen the laws on the way the land is intended to be used, paving the way for a potential NFL stadium on site.
That initial effort & meetings appears to have stalled for now.
Muriel Bowser’s Chief of Staff John Falcicchio: “There is no deal, there’s no outlined plan, and there’s no agreement between the team and the District,” “What there is, is a hope that the District is able to attain the land, either through a transfer or a long-term lease, and be able to figure out with the community what the long-term vision for the RFK campus is.”Washington Football Team Team Spokesman: “We have a very good relationship with all of our local leaders, and yes we talk to all of them on a regular basis.” “Our goal is to create the best stadium experience in all of sports.”
The Washington Washington Football Team will not move back into a stadium that almost 100 years old!!! Point blank!!
