Redskins tickets are the best price value in town of any DC sport.

I know they have been losing, but price out some lower level Wizard or Caps tickets for 10 games. Highway robbery.


Totally. I'm always surprised when I price the home teams in DC. Mid court/ice, lower level Wiz and Caps GAs have a higher face cost than their midfield counterparts at FedEx; for quadruple the number of games with hoops and hockey. Lower level GAs behind the dugouts at Nats Park are about half the face value of prime GAs at FedEx, but there are eight times the number of games.

Makes the Skins seem like biggest bargain of them all considering the NFL is by far the best product.

How can upgrades be done in May? On the 3 payment plan tickets arent paid in full till June. And like last year alot of ppl didnt even pay till july or aug and still had the same seats. So how can they know in May what seats will be available and which ones are going to be renewed or not renewed by season ticket holders?


Last payment is due May 1. They could start the upgrades in mid May but they have not started that early before.

Got a flyer in the mail today offering waver of all $100 per seat activation fees. Buy 4 or more seats and get an autographed jersey from the #2 overall draft choice. They can't acknowledge RG3 just yet, but I wonder if he knows they already have work cut out for him off the field. :cool:


Conclusion: the $100 per seat activation fee now exists only to be waved; in an attempt to make the consumer think they're getting a discount of sort. Seems like this baiting tactic was reserved for later in the offseason in recent years, now it happens in March.

Wow, that actually pisses me off. 2 years ago I filled a complaint with the BBB because of the $100 per seat fee they charged. Nothing really came of it except a bad note on their BBB file and an email from their VP of sales asking me to tell them the matter was resolved (which I never did because it wasn't).

I don't really see where the BBB would have a case bc the consumer is made aware of the fees before they purchase. Each piece of ST propaganda I've seen from the Redskins clearly mentions the activation fee. The fee is total BS imo, but its not hidden from the consumer. I guess the BBB could make a case for guys NewCliche21 who have already paid their seat activation fees this off-season, only to see new recruits enticed by the fee waver offers today; but again, its not as though NC21 wasn't aware of the fees.

Directv angered me this month when they charged me a late fee after I set up my account on automatic payment using the same credit card I've been paying them with for months online. Their excuse was that it takes 'up to 30 days to process data for automatic monthly payment deductions' (despite already having had my cc info in their system). I was informed of this in the box of fine print I checked off when I set it all up in January. The conspiracy theorist in me wants to think the 30 day wait is in place simply to generate late fees from the consumer who is unaware they're paying late. But in reality, I was wrong and DTV is right bc they had already let it be known. Is the $5 late fee worth a 15 minute call to India? Not really, and DTV knows that so I'll pay it.

this shouldn't really upset you. i think by now everyone realizes the team is having trouble selling tickets. the only way to fix that is to adjust the cost, or justify the cost by producing a winning team. they can adjust cost now, they can't produce a winning team in march.

they can't just lower prices, because if they do then when they're winning they'll take bad press for raising prices. so they waive fees to try to get people to sign up. standard business practice, nothing to get upset about.

I remember this fairly well, because I remember ranting about it. The original fee was $50 per seat. But the way the team described the fee, IMO, was underhanded. What they did was request a $50 "deposit" from fans who desired season tickets for the upcoming season. And they indicated that this deposit would be placed towards the purchase of your tickets. This was described in the text of the letter. The cost of season tickets was clearly indicated in the text of the letter.

However, at the bottom of the letter, in small print, as a footnote, the $50 fee was indicated, amongst a lot of other mostly boring and unimportant information.

So, while one can say the fee was there for all to see, that is true. But the way it was explained to the very people the team was trying to engage, was underhanded and short-sighted, in my opinion.

Now the fee is much more clearly stated.

Attendance has been decreasing the last 3 seasons. The league will eventually budge and give plenty of deep price drops on tickets. I don't know about you all but I can't afford $90 per ticket for 10 games and $8 beers, $20 parking.

I just want a normal section upgrade in the LL 200's. My special request is to be in row 4 or above.

They had a crane up at the stadium. It may have been for party decks not positive though because not enough was done. At the top of the ramp near the endzone by the escalator if you're familiar with it you know it has open steel supports. They were putting decking above those steel supports making the area below covered. Looks like it could be a floor for the party decks not sure though.

Where are your seats? I am in 428 (UL ~45 yd line row 11) and when I sell most are no problem, can make a profit on division games, but games against teams like the Cardinals won't sell. I use the cash lot, I think it is an easier walk than the grey and there is tons of room for throwing around a ball, etc. And the advantage of not eating parking you don't use, or having to try to sell it, is nice.


Seats are row 6, LL, just sideline side of the tunnel.

Yeah, I noticed the whole process this year was much more business like and less begging from the Redskins... which I liked. lol. We selected the auto-upgrade up in the 400s, to move one section closer to midfield. We'll see if it comes out that way for us.

I'm very excited, even though we are moving away for the next couple of seasons, we are keeping our tickets.

No way to tell. Just depends on what seats open up and where you are on the upgrade list of those being moved down. Since the Ticket Office considers the 100 level superior to the 200 level, if you are closer to the front of the upgrade list, you'll be in the 100 level. If at the tail end of the upgrade list, you would more likely be in the 200 level. Based on past experience of folks reporting here, the TO won't tell you where you are likely to go because they do not know how many seats will open up in each section yet.

Yeah, I get the feeling that LL GAs are the easiest to sell. I can't bring myself to give up the perspective from midfield and (from what I have heard) put up with standing the whole game. I have kids and I don't think they would hold up too well (and I like sitting too). But the energy is definitely better down there.

Why do you want to move from 239 to the 100s? I think the 200 level on the home side are the best seats in the stadium. I have a single in 142 and I spent 85% of the game standing because of the dream seat cascade.

I agree with Timmy Smith. Why would you ever want to move from section 239 down to the 100s? The 200 level seats on the home side are the sweetest seats in the stadium. I understand wanting to be closer. But do you really want to stand the entire game?

They cannot promise such a jersey because Robert Griffin III is not a Redskin. We have to draft him on April 26.

The problem with a 200 level ticket is that if you ever have to sell it on stub hub, there are other tickets (restricted view) that sell way below the face of a normal ticket. You have to then explain to people that your seats are not restricted view... it ends up being a hassle. Also, I think I would like to be a little bit closer, although, I do not want to stand for 85% of the game. Maybe I should call the ticket office and try to cancel my auto upgrade request.

What row in 454? I'm in 15. I'm hoping to move down a few rows in 454 as well but I also don't want to move too far away from the 50. This is my first time attempting to upgrade so not sure how it all will work.
