WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS – An NFL team is moving its training camp to Greenbrier County this summer, and construction is underway.
The New Orleans Saints will be training for part of the year at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs.
Owner Jim Justice tells Newswatch construction on practice fields is underway and areas for additional field houses and other facilities at The Greenbrier are set.
Justice says getting the Saints to West Virginia is an incredible opportunity for the state to share in national glory.
“The average everyday West Virginian can hold their head just a little bit higher and feel just a little bit more proud of themselves. And the world can see just how good we really are.”
Justice says the fields must be completed by May 10, which gives them a little more than a month to wrap it up.
