More upgrades at FedExField Image: Washington Commanders

Recently, the National Football League (NFL) team Washington Commanders announced additional upgrades to their home arena – the Commanders Field in Maryland (US) – bringing targeted investments in improving the stadium and the fan and player experience to a total of more than $75 million once completed since the new ownership purchased the team in July last year.

‘Washington Commanders’ stated that the upgrades will be noticeable from the moment the fans enter the parking lots and include faster entry into the stadium, new premium seating options and suite experiences, improved food and beverage (F&B) options, and sound system upgrades. The stadium also will be getting a structural refresh, including upgrades to the elevators and the escalators, water and mechanical systems and other infrastructure improvements.

The Washington Commanders are a professional American football team based in the Washington metropolitan area (US). The Commanders compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member of the National Football Conference East division.

The 67,617-capacity Commanders Field is an American football stadium located in Landover, Maryland, 5 miles east of Washington, D.C. (US). The stadium is the home of the Washington Commanders of the National Football League (NFL). From 2004 until 2010, it had the NFL’s largest seating capacity: Over 91,000.

On February 29th, the shipping giant FedEx relinquished its naming rights to the FedEx Field, the Landover stadium and concert venue where the Washington Commanders play their home games. This opt-out came two years before the end of a 27-year, $205 million deal, and will cost the NFL team roughly $15 million in revenue. For now, the stadium will be known as the Commanders Field.

‘Washington Commanders’ further stated that the fans will have the opportunity to enjoy new experiences throughout gameday, including a VIP field tunnel club where they can purchase access to cheer on the Commanders from feet away as the team takes the field, the 1932 Club – an entirely new premium suite space, upgraded furniture and carpeting in the select premium areas, new terrace tables, and an upgraded United Service Organizations (USO) lounge for the veterans and the military members.

Throughout the stadium, the organization is improving food and beverage service, including new market concepts and drink lanes that will allow the fans to get back to their seats more quickly. The team also is making a substantial investment to improve the sound quality throughout the stadium. Additionally, thanks to a simpler, more efficient parking system and frictionless security entry points, fans will get to the tailgate and into the stadium at gametime much faster.

Asserted Jason Wright, President, Washington Commanders, “With the addition of General Manager Adam Peters, Head Coach Dan Quinn and the incredible football staff they’ve assembled, it’s already been an exciting offseason for the Commanders fans, and we’re eager to build upon that momentum by strengthening our team through the Draft and Free Agency. The above announcement is also another tremendous step forward for our fans and the players. Our ownership team continues to make significant investments to improve the overall stadium experience for the Commanders games and an impressive slate of concerts and other great live events coming to the DMV in the future.”

The Commanders look forward to welcoming fans back for the 2024 season. On March 9th and March 10th, fans that have a deposit for season tickets will be able to choose from the best available seats at the annual ‘Select Your Seat’ event at the stadium.
