The Washington Commanders will move business operations from FedExField to Greater College Park early this year, freeing up space for suites at the stadium while expanding the franchise’s footprint in Maryland.
“Moving our headquarters will provide exciting new spaces to take in home games and will provide for greater collaboration for our business staff and partnership with the University of Maryland,” Commanders President Jason Wright said in announcing the move in December.
The new offices will be in the Discovery District, UMD’s 150-acre hub of research and innovation that houses tenants including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Capital One, Adobe and Raytheon, as well as amenities like The Hotel at the University of Maryland and the Hall CP.
“The proximity to this new home for the Commanders is an incredible opportunity for our students pursuing invaluable internships and our emerging sports management program,” says Ken Ulman, chief strategy officer for economic development at UMD.
