The Washington Redskins announced Jan. 14 that general admission ticket prices for the 2009 season would remain unchanged for the third straight year.
"We work hard to hold the line on price increases, and are obviously sensitive to the economic realities faced by our fans," said Mitch Gershman, the team's chief operating officer. "We have fantastic fan support as evidenced by the more than 200,000 people on our waiting list for season tickets, and we try hard to maintain price stability for the best fans in the NFL."
Since 1999, the team has increased general admission ticket prices only twice (2000 and 2006), a rarity among U.S. sports franchises. General admission tickets currently range in price from $29 to $99. The team's season tickets have been sold out since 1966.
Mailing of season ticket renewals is scheduled to begin by the end of January.
Once again, fans can access their "My Season Ticket Account" on Redskins.com to directly manage their accounts, including paying for tickets in a direct, secure manner.
