Redskins Playoff Tickets Are Sold Out

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 31, 2012 – 2:11 pm


This comes as no surprise.

The Washington Redskins announced today that tickets to the NFC Wild Card Weekend playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday have sold out.

In the event there are player or visitor team ticket returns, fans are encouraged to check with Ticketmaster for availability.

With as many fans that I saw early this morning rushing to the Redskins Ticket Office at FedExField following Washington’s 28-18 win over the Dallas Cowboys late Sunday night (see above), I knew this announcement was only a matter of time.

For those who were fortunate enough to score tickets, here’s what you need to know about Sunday’s big game:

Fighting Cancer? The Mammovan Can

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 13, 2012 – 3:09 pm

Our focus on Breast Cancer Awareness Month continues with a look at the famous Mammovan.

On Thursday, the George Washington Medical Faculty Associates Mobile Mammography Program — or, for short, the Mammovan — headed to FedExField to help 15 Prince Georges County women receive mammograms at no charge. The screenings, which were coordinated through the CSA in Maryland, lasted from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The Mammovan has actually been a staple in the Washington, D.C.-area’s battle against breast cancer since 1996.

VIDEO: Bruce Allen Greets Tailgaters

Posted by Andrew Walker on September 23, 2012 – 9:08 am

Washington Redskins general manager Bruce Allen was hitting the pavement early this morning, greeting tailgaters as they came into the FedExField parking lots for today’s 2012 home opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.

And wouldn’t you know it? The first person he greeted was a Dallas Cowboys fan!

Anyway, the fans are definitely antsy for this home opener — as you all should be.

Here’s video from Allen’s meet-and-greet this morning:

If you were anywhere near FedExField last night, you most likely heard the music.

The Brothers of the Sun Tour — featuring Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw — was in town, and let me tell you, it was a pretty darn-good show.

Shanahan’s Welcome To Redskins Fans

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 28, 2012 – 1:39 pm

Even though Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan couldn’t be at FedExField this afternoon for the Draft Day party (he’s a little bit busy in the Redskins War Room), he was able to treat fans at FedExField to a special message from Redskins Park.

After his Thursday night selection of quarterback Robert Griffin III, that smile on his face might be permanent.

[Editor’s Note: Coach Shanahan chose a poor time to be soft-spoken.  It translated well to the crowd in the stadium, but not on the audio here.  Transcript follows the video.] Read more »

First Ever Chants Of ‘R-G-3’ At FedExField

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 27, 2012 – 11:01 am

As the clock ticked down to 8 p.m. last night, Redskins Nation swelled with pride, as fans around the world huddled around their television sets and waited for the good word.

The team hosted its first ever Draft Day Viewing Party at FedExField.  Sponsored and impromptu Redskins Rallies cropped up all over the district, and at various bars across the country.  Fans on Twitter posted from as far away as Europe and Asia, foregoing sleep to watch the pick live.  At Radio City Music Hall, the overwhelmingly Redskins crowd booed Andrew Luck and the Colts, chanting ‘R-G-3!’ until long after he left the stage.  Into the wee hours of the morning, all anyone could talk about was the career trajectories of the first and second overall picks.

And last night was just the beginning.

The fan reaction was the perfect storm for years of frustration combined with insatiable pride.  It was a move that was three years in the making, of roster building and preparation to find that franchise guy.  Last night was only the first step, but today will be largely devoted to the celebration by the fans, for the fans.

The first stop we make is at FedExField, the new home field for Robert Griffin III, and the new-look Redskins.  Fans mobbed the Club Level of the stadium, and roared with the announcement by Roger Goodell.  For the first of hopefully many times, the crowd broke out in a spontaneous chant of ‘R-G-3!’ holding up three fingers: Read more »
