The Washington Redskins play at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. The stadium used to be the largest in the National Football League until renovations before the 2011 season reduced total capacity. Football fans should rush to see a game at FedEx Field as the venue is one of the older facilities in the NFL and Redskins ownership is under continual discussion to move the franchise back to a stadium closer to the heart of the Washington, D.C. area. A broad overview of the seating areas in the venue is available by looking at the Washington Redskins seating chart. More detailed information about specific seats and amenities for various areas of FedEx Field can be found throughout RedskinsSeatingChart.com.
FedEx Field is subdivided into a range of seating areas for Redskins home games. The basic areas include: Redskins Suites, Redskins Dream Seats, Redskins Zone A Club, Redskins Zone B Club, Redskins Zone D Club, Redskins Club Level Party Decks, Redskins Audi Club, Redskins Hooters, Redskins Greene Turtle, Redskins Montecristo Club, Redskins Loge Seats, Redskins Lower Level General Admission, and Redskins Upper Level General Admission.
The building that is now known as FedEx Field was completed in 1997 and originally called Jack Kent Cooke Stadium. Two years after its inaugural season, the facility was renamed thanks to a long-term naming rights deal with the FedEx transportation company. The Washington Redskins are the only permanent tenants for the stadium, but FedEx Field is used for NCAA Football bowl games, international soccer matches, and numerous concerts each year. Recent modifications have increased the revenue generated by the stadium for each NFL game while actually reducing the total capacity of fans.
The total seating capacity for football games at FedEx Field is 85,000 fans. Even when all tickets for actual seats are sold out, the building can accommodate thousands of additional fans through party decks, suites, and general admission standing room only sections. See the FedEx Field seating chart for a picture of the different areas open for NFL games.
