Maryland withdraws from Redskins stadium chase

Maryland governor Larry Hogan has withdrawn from efforts to help the Washington Redskins secure a new stadium site, The Washington Post reports. The governor had been aiding the Redskins in a speculative effort to secure Federal land to build a new stadium in Prince George’s County, Maryland.

The Redskins are seeking a new stadium. The NFL franchise currently plays in Maryland at FedEx Field. Owner Daniel Snyder’s first choice would be to return to the District of Columbia in a new stadium on the site of RFK Stadium where the Redskins played prior to moving to Maryland in 1997. RFK Stadium’s last tenant, DC United of MLS moved to a new stadium in 2018.

Snyder has used the potential of staying in Maryland as leverage in discussions with the District of Columbia. Hogan’s move, leaves the Redskins without a viable option in Maryland for the foreseeable future.
