Huddle up hungry travelers – football season is here and the new Washington Redskins Burgundy & Gold Club is serving up good times and game day-inspired cuisine at Washington Dulles International Airport’s Concourse B.

The exclusive new full-service restaurant and bar by global restaurateur HMSHost offers travelers a chef-driven menu and a festive atmosphere celebrating the team’s 85-year storied history in the National Football League. A grand opening was celebrated today with Washington Redskins personalities, along with HMSHost, Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, Morgan Group Ventures, and MarketPlace Development representatives.

“The Burgundy & Gold Club is the perfect stop for traveling fans and HMSHost is thrilled to spotlight Washingtonians’ hometown team along with great food and drinks to travelers from around the world,” said HMSHost Vice President of Business Development Bryan Loden. “HMSHost is honored to build a winning team with the Washington Redskins, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, Morgan Group Ventures, and MarketPlace Development to offer travelers this unique dining experience right inside the concourse.”

From helmets and cleats to bobbleheads, replica Lombardi trophies, and autographed jerseys from the team’s greatest players, memorabilia and photos from the five-time World Champions are on full-display throughout the restaurant. A large video wall showcases the team’s history and illuminated transparent mesh images hang from the ceiling and feature the team’s legendary players inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Terry Bateman, Washington Redskins CMO, said: “We are thrilled to be working alongside of MWAA with our partner HMSHost to bring the Washington Redskins Burgundy and Gold Club to one of the great airports of this region, Dulles Airport.
