NFL owners voted Tuesday to approve league funding for the Washington Redskins to cover a portion of a $27 million renovation of FedEx Field a person familiar with the deliberations said. The league’s funding will come in the form of a waiver of club-seat revenue contributions that the Redskins normally would have to make to other teams and the league said the person who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the owners’ approval of the funding for the Redskins’ renovation had not yet been announced. It was not immediately clear how much of the $27 million total cost of the FedEx Field renovation will be covered by the league’s funding. Under league rules the money that the Redskins keep from their club-seat waiver must go toward the renovation. A person familiar with the situation had said Monday that the FedEx Field renovation includes Wi-Fi seating modifications ribbon boards (a form of stadium signage) and a Hall of Fame expansion. Redskins owner Daniel Snyder and General Manager Bruce Allen attended Tuesday’s owner’ meeting at a downtown Washington hotel but were not immediately available to comment.
