Redskins and baseball’s Washington Senators and Washington Nationals.

The team would like to move to a new, soccer-only facility. DC United president Kevin Payne says the team looks forward to “more detailed discussions with the district about a long-term stadium solution.”

Events DC, which operates the stadium, has also announced improvements including renovated restrooms, improved concourse
lighting, new bleachers and an upgraded sound system.
