Report reveals three potential Virginia locations for new Washington Commanders stadium


A new report from WUSA9 has revealed three potential Virginia locations for a new Washington Commanders stadium should the Commonwealth be chosen.

According to WUSA9's report, documents obtained through a source close to the Commanders stadium project reveal that Woodbridge and Dumfries (both in Prince William County), and Sterling (Loudoun County) are the three Virginia sites identified in a document titled "Washington Football Team Master Plan Workshop" that's dated Dec. 22, 2021.

The document has the sites broken into three subgroups, listed as Master Plan Sites A, B and C.

Site A (Dumfries) would be located in the Potomac Shores development, home to the prestigious golf club by the same name. It's wedged between the Potomac River and Quantico Creek, just off of I-95 and Route 1. It's the most remote of the three locations, positioned approximately 33 miles from downtown D.C.

Site B (Woodbridge) would back up to an existing neighborhood on Summit School Road, located off of I-95 and accessible via Telegraph and Minnieville Roads, an approximately 25-mile drive from downtown D.C. According to the report, plans call for the stadium to be built on undeveloped land behind the neighborhood.

Site C (Sterling) would designate Loudoun Quarries as the site for a new stadium, a location that's roughly a 30-mile drive from downtown D.C. It sits off of Route 28, a main thoroughfare in Loudoun that connects to Dulles International Airport only two miles away. Route 28 is accessible via I-66, Route 50 and the VA-267 toll road.

JP Finlay provided a helpful visual of where the three locations sit in relation to the Capital Beltway, as well as the team's current stadium site, FedEx Field, in Landover, Md.
