Washington Football Team Returning to Richmond for Training Camp

The Washington Football Team will return to Richmond, Va., for training camp, if only briefly.

There will be five days of open practices — Tuesday, July 28 – Saturday, July 31 — during the team’s stay in Richmond, WTOP reported Friday. The camp will culminate with a special workout on July 31 as part of the NFL’s initiative to celebrate the return of football.

“Going away for training camp has always been something I find valuable and believe is a positive experience for building team camaraderie,” head coach Ron Rivera said in a statement. “We are eager to get to Richmond to start training camp, and I know I speak for all our players and coaches in saying we are excited to have the opportunity to reach and engage with a different part of our fan base and see what the city of Richmond has to offer.”

While fans will be allowed to watch open practices, it has not been determined whether players will be permitted to sign autographs, according to WTOP.

“Our entire organization is thrilled to return to Richmond for training camp this year,” team President Jason Wright said in the statement. “Our time spent in Richmond has been successful on and off the field, highlighted by the connection to our fans along with our community engagement  efforts that have positively impacted Richmond and the surrounding area. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with the city of Richmond as we return and kick off our 2021 season.”
