The Washington Commanders are set to undergo lucrative renovations on FedExField in order to improve “the overall fan experience”.
In a statement released on Thursday, the Commanders outlined plans to improve the stadium’s infrastructure and gameday experience by adding “three new themed suites, new ticket scanning pedestals, point of sale upgrades, and updated Commanders branded imagery around the stadium, as well as maintenance repairs to the bowl and paint around the stadium.”
Commanders’ Senior VP of Operations and Guest Experience, Trista Langdon, offered the following statement on the new upgrades:
“We have the best fans in football – and they deserve the best gameday experience. These upgrades to FedExField represent an immediate and tangible step to improve that experience, something our ownership group considers a top priority. Not only are we taking care of our fans, we’re also taking care of our house. Fans will continue to see improvements throughout the season as we continue to invest and make changes to everything from basic infrastructure to a re-imagined pregame ritual. We are excited for fans to come home and see all the changes on September 10.”
Though it only opened in 1997, FedExField is widely regarded by fans and pundits as the worst current NFL stadium. The location of the stadium isn’t easily accessible by public transit compared to other stadiums, not to mention the seemingly never-ending issues with the infrastructure.
The Commanders had next-to-nothing to celebrate during Dan Snyder’s 24-year run as the owner. But the miserable era finally came to an end when he sold the club to a group led by Josh Harris earlier this year for $6.05 billion.
Washington will begin a new era of football on Sept. 10 when they welcome the Arizona Cardinals to FedExField. After that, the Commanders will travel to Denver for a road tilt against the Broncos.
