Report Details Plans for New Commanders Stadium in Prince George’s

By Tracee Wilkins, News4 Prince George’s County Bureau Chief 

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks detail their plan for a new stadium for the Washington Commanders in a report obtained by News4.

It suggests the new stadium be built on the present FedEx Field site that the team currently owns. It proposes building a practice facility, team headquarters, hotel and conference center, a community hub including the sports and learning field house, the stadium, and an entertainment district.

“We have a plan for the Blue Line corridor where we anchored the hospital on one end and are trying to build along Central Avenue toward the D.C. line,” said Del. Jazz Lewis, D-District 24.

The report details improvements to traffic and walkability, including creating connector trails tying the stadium to downtown Largo.

“We don’t just want a new stadium,” Alsobrooks said. “We want long-term sustainability for the team and the community in which it sits.”

In Annapolis Tuesday, Alsobrooks testified in support of the Maryland Stadium Authority providing investment funds for a new stadium in Prince George’s County and the community around it. There’s a proposal to increase funding for Baltimore’s stadiums. She asked that the Washington region be included, too.

“I am asking you to similarly make sure Prince Georgians are not left behind like we were in 1997 when a stadium opened with no infrastructure to sustain and no infrastructure to benefit the surrounding community,” she said. Continue reading at NBC 4.
