The Redskins sent out an email to fans on the season-ticket waiting list today, which will hopefully clear up some of the confusion around the list as it relates to the removed seats in the upper deck. Here’s the full text of the email, and you can see the more visually appealing original version after the jump.
Dear Redskins Fan,
We are writing to clear up some recent confusion in the media regarding the status of our season ticket Wait List. Please rest assured that your name remains on the list, and that this is the only way to obtain Redskins general admission season tickets. We continue to have one of the largest season ticket Wait Lists in the NFL, and we are one of just a few teams that has a Wait List at all.
Because of the labor dispute between the League and the Players Association, in February of this year we discontinued most of our efforts to sell season tickets. We did not want to put our fans in the position of having to buy tickets with a lockout imminent or risk losing their place on the Wait List. This gave us the opportunity to commence our Upper Level renovation project with our energy partner NRG, which will include solar panels as part of our effort to make FedExField one of the leaders in “going green”.
For 2011, this project will reduce stadium capacity through the removal of thousands of seats that our fans have told us are the least desirable in the stadium. This renovation will improve your game day experience by reducing traffic into and out of Stadium parking lots, creating shorter lines for escalators and restrooms, and allowing easier access to concessions. We are continuing the planning process with our engineers and architects for party decks in the Upper Level, and we hope to finish that process and provide you with more details by late this year. We are confident that when this process is complete, all of our fans will regard it as a major improvement to FedExField.
Thank you for your patience and support in this unusual year. Feel free to call the Ticket Office at 301-276-6033 if you have any questions. We look forward to having you join the team and become a season ticket holder over the next few seasons.
Hail to the Redskins!
