What to expect from Washington Commanders training camp in 2022


The team's inaugural training camp as the Washington Commanders will feature a few changes. Washington Commanders training camp begins on Wednesday and there are a few changes in store. Most notably, training camp will be held in Ashburn, Virginia, rather than Richmond. The city of Richmond has hosted the Commanders for training camp since 2014 at the Bon Secours facility, built in 2013. The Commanders usually will practice in Richmond for the first two weeks of training camp before heading back up to their normal practice facility in northern Virginia. The eight-year contract to hold training camp in Richmond expired after the 2020 season. However, training camp didn’t take place in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fans who want to get a look at the 2022 Commanders up close will have a chance to do so at FedEx Field on Saturday, Aug. 6. Several other practices will be held between July 27 and Aug. 18 that fans had the opportunity to sign up for the chance to attend through a fan lottery system. The lottery is now closed.
