Model of new Redskins stadium unveiled
WASHINGTON - Although the Washington Redskins' lease at FedEx Field doesn't expire for another decade, a model of what the team's next stadium could look like has been unveiled.
The Redskins have recently hired the Bjarke Ingels Group, a highly-renowned Danish architecture firm, to design a new stadium for the football team.
The firm revealed a model of the futuristic stadium to CBS's "60 Minutes," which even features a moat for kayakers.
Redskins tailgaters should expect a much more enjoyable experience with the layout of this innovative design.
"The stadium is designed as much for the tailgating, like the pre-game, as for the game itself," Ingels tells 60 Minutes. "Tailgating literally becomes a picnic in a park. It can actually make the stadium a more lively destination throughout the year without ruining the turf for the football game."
Although a design for a stadium is taking shape, where it will be located is still a mystery. Officials from D.C., Maryland and Virginia have all expressed interest in having the Redskins play their home games in their neck of the woods after the team's lease at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland expires in 2027.
