Starting next summer the Redskins will hold preseason training not in Loudoun County, but in Richmond. The team's full-time training and corporate headquarters will remain in Loudoun, where team officials plan to expand Redskins Park.

"Certainly we would prefer that they stay here, but at the end of the day the team needs to do what they believe is best to help the Redskins become a championship team again," says Scott York, chairman of the Loundon County Board of Supervisors.

York says preseason training brings in money for the county, but he understands the change may help prepare the team for the upcoming season. A site has yet to be selected in Richmond for the twice-daily practices. Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones says he has been working with team owner Dan Snyder and senior team executives to find the right training facilities for the team.
