The City Stadium parking lot, which has been promoted by the City of Richmond for months, has been discontinued just three days before the busiest session of Redskins training camp.
On Saturday, as many as 25,000 fans are expected at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center for Fan Appreciation Day. That will also be the first day fans can’t use the park-and-ride option at City Stadium.
The city released the news in a press release Wednesday night. Word was slow to trickle out, though. The training center’s official website, run by Bon Secours, posted a web update on Wednesday touting City Stadium as an “easy-in, easy-out” option.
For $7, fans could park there and shuttle to the facility, an option that will no longer be available starting Saturday.
