No hot water at FedEx Field meant Giants and Commanders players were unable to shower after game

As if things couldn’t get any worse for the Washington Commanders, FedEx Field had no hot water after Sunday’s game against the New York Giants, meaning players from both teams were unable to shower.

The Giants defeated the Commanders 31-19 after Washington turned the ball over six times, sweeping the season series.

From Washington’s statement:

“We had an equipment failure in the main water heater that provides hot water to the field-level locker rooms,” the statement read. “We can’t resolve the matter without completely shutting off the water to the stadium, which is why it couldn’t be repaired in game.”

This is the latest debacle for FedEx Field, for which there are far too many to name over the years. New owner Josh Harris said when taking control of the team in July that making improvements to FedEx Field was one of his priorities. Harris and his partners have spent millions in upgrading the 26-year-old facility since August.

While it may be fun for some to blame a hot water issue on ownership, this can happen anywhere.
