RICHMOND, Va. (WAVY) - The Washington Redskins broke ground on a new training camp facility in Richmond Thursday.
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones, Bon Secours Virginia Health System CEO Peter Bernard and Washington Redskins Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen were among those present for the event.
The Redskins will train at the new state-of-the-art facility for three weeks, beginning this summer.
When the camp is not in session, the facility will be available for youth programs and competitions. It will also house Bon Secours Sports Medicine, rehabilitation and other services.
"Today's groundbreaking further acknowledges the strength of the partnership between the Commonwealth, the City, Bon Secours, and the Washington Redskins," said Mayor Jones. "This effort will not only stimulate new economic development and jobs, but also generates business expansion all while providing health-care services and education to Richmond residents."
