    WFT announces no fans at this week's game vs Bengals.  It was short lived and dumb to have people in a cluster for more than 3k in a setting. 

     

    better safe then sorry

    I was surprised yesterday to receive a small package from BDA. Inside were two Washington Gold baseball hats and a pin! My first WFT gear! Funny that I just purchased a shirt during the 25% off sale on Tuesday. I think it comes today. Keep the perks coming, Mr. Wright!

     

    ya I got a fedex notice I have a package from BDA coming today.  I had no clue what it was till someone posted on Twitter.

    I think it means we did not even have a couple thousand season ticket holders that wanted tickets. Sad

     

     

    I  got another email the other day saying tickets were still available.

    You do not. I’m saying that if I’m going to be spending 4+ hours sitting directly next to someone that I’ve had no previous close contact with, I’d prefer to know we are both COVID negative first. For anyone that would not fill 2 or 4 seats with their own household, they’d be in the same position of either risking their and their guest’s health, buying a $100+ ticket and not using it, or getting tested to be sure you all don’t have it before spending time together. 

    Comes up fine for me. Midfield is sold out now. Maybe you have your window time wrong? Call your ticket rep if you are still having trouble. 

     

    I literally got an email right at noon telling me to login.   So I'm guessing this is just another screw up on their part.

    My window is now and it is saying no tickets available.

    Why offer me a window if tickets could sell out by now and just frustrate a fan!

    To hear them being sold online only makes me more mad.

     

     

    Ditto, logged in right at noon, says no Events Available

  6. Scalpers are already out in force, tickets selling on the 3rd party market sites for $300+ a ticket.   Washington should have made them non-transferable.  Though I feel like with only 3000 available, they can easily track who has them.

    The email gave me a buy ticket time of Wednesday at noon. So not a window as much as a start time. It is first come first served and I want to go but I assume they will be sold out before it gets to me. Which if that happens then they set this up poorly to have a lot of disappointed fans with purchase times that mean nothing.

     

    Oh yea I am bringing a cooler and having a few beers in the car. they just don't want tents and grills and parties which is totally understandable. 

     

    All that really matter is beat dallass tomorrow! I don't care about division standing or draft picks, just beat the living hell out of dallass!

     

    Mine is at Noon on Wednesday too.  Have had season tickets for either 10 or 11 years if they count the obstructed view seats.   Would have been nice if they also took into account if you let them hold onto the money you paid for this season into account too.

    I won a pizza from the team to be delivered before the game this Sunday!

     

    Love these little touches and I hope to get seats to the Nov 8th game.

     

     

     

    Lucky! I entered, wonder how many they actually picked vs how many people entered.

    Jason Wright, in addition to saying that we might be stuck with the WFT moniker through the 2021 season, states that they are looking at having 3500 fans allowed at FedEx for the November 8th game against the Giants.

     

    Why the hell anyone would want to pay to go to a game where the stadium is less than five percent occupied is beyond me.

     

    maybe they will pay us to go :)

  10. Did anyone else get the Gold Emails after the fact?  I got one this morning at 7:45 for the Ryan Kerrigan thing yesterday.    And the Gold Member Benefit email came yesterday but that was 1 day after the 1st interview on Sept 2.  So missed that too.

  11. Got an email the other day with the RedZone and NFL GameDay pass info as well as the usual insulting 15% off the team store.    Pretty sad they aren't offering any better deals on this soon to be worthless Washington Football Team gear.

    I do not get why people come on a season ticket holder thread to question why people get season tickets.

     

    I enjoy knowing I have the whole season but besides what was said above there are perks like field access which my kid loves and memorabilia. The best I got was a three day all inclusive trip to the Bahamas with Doug Williams and a dozen other players. It included a golf tournament. Well worth season ticktes.

     

    Or my 3 day all expense paid trip to the Pro Bowl. (yes I know we are in the minority) but obviously having chances to win stuff like this is great.

    Some people like having the seats in certain locations, like the aisle, in the 200 section under cover, or any number of reasons.  Also, the parking passes you buy are cheaper than just about anything you can get on the secondary market.  I got purple passes this winter for $50 each game, and I paid $75-100 on the secondary market the past two years.  

     

    Also, if the team has an upswing, then you have your preferred location locked in.  

     

    Personally, I found great seats that I enjoy, and I am going to ride it out until they relocate.  If it goes to DC and the tailgating scene is non-existent, I won't carry my tickets over.  If it is deep into Virginia, the same thing will happen.  I'm also not paying an exorbitant PSL fee either. 

     

     

    Ya I never understood that.  The parking passes always held their value or were sold for more (even after ticket sales dropped to nothing).  I decided to let them keep my money for now though I did stop the payments, I think I only had 1 or 2 left, so it was really only like $1200 or so.  I kinda wanting to see how it plays out.

    The ticket office called me today, they wanted to know if I wanted a refund and if I had any questions. First thing the guy told me was the first 2 home games would be empty stadium games and the rest of the season was wait and see. I was surprised to hear that, since that's not what the email they just sent me, that day said. I asked if there was going to be any incentive to not take the refund, he flat out said no, but would let me know if that changes. I got the feeling it wasn't going to change, but I don't think they are sure about anything.  I guess the incentive would be if they said you could come to game 3 or whatever, you would already be paid up. The guy on the phone, called the team the Redskins, every time, when referring to the team. I don't care, but it surprised me. I got the feeling the whole thing was a fly by the seat of your pants operation. Especially, since one day they send me an email asking if I wanted to go to the games, the next day they send me an email saying it will be an empty stadium and hours later they tell me on the phone, maybe you can go after the first 2 games. Who knows? 

     

     

    From my Rep:

     

    "Correct, We will not be having fans in the stadium this season. You have the option to receive a refund or credit to your 2021 season tickets.

     

    You do have the option to stop payments on your payment plan this year and continue next season. Unfortunately, we do not have any incentive options to offer when it comes to the refund vs deferring."

    I got my email on Tuesday about wanting more information around 2 pm.  On Wednesday, I got the email about fans not attending at 8 am.  So what changed in 18 hours?  One would think that they would've asked all of the appropriate questions of state and local government agencies about their thoughts and plans for safety.  My best guess is that their submitted plan for safety and sanitization was rejected.  

     

    My rep said something different.  It does sound like this is all seat of the pants, or that the left and right hand don't know what the others are doing.  I also got a call from someone who left a voicemail, but he did call it the Washington Football Team.  Here is what my rep said via email: 

     

     

    Honestly, I took the refund.  At least the Orioles are giving me a 125% credit, so a quarter of my 2022 tickets can have a deposit.  Meanwhile, the WFT isn't even offering us vouchers or reduced parking or anything to stay on.  If my money isn't doing anything for me, I want it back.  

    Agreed.  At least the Orioles are offering 125% credit, so it's essentially a quarter of my cost for 2022.  That's a pretty good deal if you view it as a short-term investment.  With the WFT offering nothing, I want it back.  My money needs to be working for me, and if they aren't offering anything close to that deal that the Orioles are offering, I want it back.  

     

    Did you notice at the bottom of the link for picking refund etc it says:  "Premium Members (Club & Dream Seat Members) will automatically have an additional year added to their membership agreement."

     

     

    Not that I have premium seats but is that even legal?   I find it hard to believe the folks who have those seats contract says they can do that if fans aren't allowed in the stadium.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I didn't see any incentive for choosing to apply the money to your 2021 tickets. Why would anyone choose that option?

     

    Didnt see anything.  Anyone contact their Rep yet?    

  17. 3 hours ago, CTennant said:

    There is one big thing that the first email does not mention.  If you choose to defer (credit or refund), will the same seats be offered back to you?  I have emailed twice about this and have not gotten any response.  It seems logical, but I don’t want to assume anything.  Has anybody received any sort of clarification on this?

     

    -ct

     

    That brings up the point that the majority of season ticket holders would have to defer anyways.   They already said limited # of fans.  So how are they going to decide who gets to use their tickets and who doesn't.    With that being said if you do defer them what sort of benefit are they offering.  I'd rather hold only that 2k for another year, then let them have it and collect interest.  Though if they offered some benefit as a STH to keep my money then that is a different story.

    I won't shed a tear for no Pre-season, I was lucky to be able to give those games away.  I used to donate them to Most Valuable Kids.  Then they adjusted the prices and those games value was really low.

    So for some reason I never got that email, but I had happened to email my rep about something else and she said, " We are planning to send detailed information by email in the next few days that will explain the (limited capacity, refund policy and deferral program).  Did you receive our email on Tuesday? "

     

    Which is how I realized I didn't get an email.     Not sure what happened as it didnt go to spam and I've never missed a Redskin Gold Email.  (not including that last virtual chat which they said was their fault).
