Proposed Washington stadium has a moat

stock-illustration-67405987-drawbridge

With more and more teams planning and building more and more compelling and dynamic stadiums, Washington’s idea for pushing the envelop is to go old school and dig a ditch.

The latest episode of 60 Minutes on CBS included images of a venue for the team that features a moat around the perimeter of the structure.

The idea comes from Bjarke Ingles Group, a company from Denmark that has never before designed a sports stadium. (#shocker.)

Washington is at least a decade away from replacing FedEx Field, a 19-year-old venue that looks and feels a lot older than it is. Which means that Washington has roughly that long and come to its senses regarding the prospect of having fans on game day so close to safety hazard after imbibing something significantly stronger than the contents of the moat.
