The Washington Commanders reportedly spent over $100 million to acquire land in Virginia, a step many believe is the first in building a new stadium.
For roughly 200 acres, the NFL organization finalized the deal last week. It now needs to be filed with Prince William County, according to an ESPN report citing a source with knowledge of the purchase.
The location is believed by many to be the future home of the franchise and the site where a stadium, retail shops, restaurants, and apartments will be built, the report noted.

However, such a claim is unconfirmed, as the Commanders are anticipated to acquire roughly 65-70 acres in Woodbridge, according to the report.
Wherever the new location may be, the plans for the new stadium and surrounding area appear to be extensive.
They include the construction of a 60,000-seat domed stadium, an amphitheater sitting 15,000 to 20,000, a small indoor music arena, several high-end retail shops, bars, restaurants, and residential living, according to a source.
One feature of the new stadium would be a translucent roof capable of changing colors, according to the report.
