Redskins might get NFL funds for $27 million FedEx Field renovation

October 7, 2013

The Redskins could be getting some new renovations to their stadium

NFL owners are expected to vote Tuesday on providing league funding to the Washington Redskins for renovations to FedEx Field, two people familiar with the situation said.

The Redskins declined to provide details, but one of the people with knowledge of the matter said the $27 million renovation includes seating modifications, wi-fi, ribbon boards (a form of stadium signage) and a Hall of Fame expansion.

The league contributes to teams’ stadium construction and renovation projects through its G-4 funding program. Such funding must be approved by the owners.

The owners are scheduled to meet Tuesday in downtown Washington.
