FedEx Field is not considered one of the NFL’s most glamorous stadiums and what happened after the Giants defeated the Washington Commanders on Sunday won’t help that image, Christian Arnold of The New York Post reports. 

A mechanical issue with the stadium’s main water heater meant there was no hot water in either team’s locker room, preventing players from a hot postgame shower.

The Commanders confirmed the issue in a statement to various media outlets after the game. 

“We had an equipment failure in the main water heater that provides hot water to the field level locker rooms,” a Commanders spokesperson told Pro Football Talk in a statement. “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.”

FedEx Field opened back in 1997 and is often criticized as one of the worst stadiums in the NFL.

In fact, USA Today called it the worst stadium in the league in a 2022 ranking. 

Questions about the playing surface have been raised in the past and there have been other issues with the facility.
