After a year away, the Washington Football Team is returning to Richmond, Va. at the end of July to host its first week of training camp.

The team was unable to travel to its camp site of the previous seven years in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but head coach Ron Rivera felt it was necessary to pay tribute to the fans in the area by coming back in 2021. 

With that, the organization has a lot planned from July 27-31, offering fans a special experience. Here’s everything to know about the special week.
