Potomac Nationals Baseball Move Closer to Finalizing Multi-Purpose Stadium Deal

The City of Fredericksburg and Potomac Nationals announced at the June 26, 2018 Council Meeting a partnership that could lead to the team relocating to a newly constructed 5,000-seat multi-purpose stadium in Celebrate Virginia South. The community will have ample opportunity to weigh in on the proposal before it’s finalized. City Council unanimously approved a Letter of Intent at the July 10 meeting that triggers a 120 day study period in which the Club would plan the stadium, receive all approvals from Minor League Baseball and the Carolina League, secure financing, obtain legislation approvals from City Council regarding land use, and more.  The study period included a special-purpose City Council public meeting to hear input on the proposal, as well as drafting and negotiating a definitive agreement with the Club. The Club will then go through the permitting process, constructing the stadium and opening it for play -  in time for Opening Day in April 2020.
