The extended service, announced Thursday, is being funded by the Commanders, who will cover the $100,000 cost to run more trains, keep all 97 stations open, and other operational expenses. The team will also provide free fare for all customers staying until the end of the game and taking advantage of the additional hour of service.
More Blue and Silver line trains will be in service during the one-hour extended service in the direction of Ashburn and Franconia-Springfield.

The last train departure times on Sunday night after the game will be:
- 12:28 a.m., to Ashburn from Morgan Boulevard station
- to Franconia-Springfield from Morgan Boulevard station
- to Ashburn from Downtown Largo station
- to Franconia-Springfield from Downtown Largo station
