WOODBRIDGE, Va. — The Washington Commanders may have just taken a big step forward in selecting the team’s future stadium location, with Virginia continuing to play a leading role.
According to a Commanders spokesperson, the organization has purchased 200 acres of land in Woodbridge, Virginia for approximately $100 million. The spokesperson, however, made it clear the team is still assessing multiple locations in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.
WUSA9 has previously reported that team leadership was considering three potential Northern Virginia sites where a Commanders stadium could be built, two of which were in Prince William County. The documents, which WUSA9 agreed not to show on air or online but has permission to report, are marked “Washington Football Team Master Plan Workshop” dated “12.22.2021” and broken into three separate plans: Master Plan Site A, Site B and Site C.
Site B is about 26 miles from downtown D.C. right off I-95 in Woodbridge, accessible by Telegraph Road and commercial and residential streets, backing up against an existing neighborhood on Summit School Road.
