Redskins increase the price of tickets, parking at FedEx Field

it took that dick one year of success. in the article you'll note how they compare us to the giants and cowboys ticket prices, almost as if the redskins are justifying it by saying two other teams in our division still have higer prices. you know what else those two teams have a new figgin stadium, not an old dump thats been recently stripped down to the bones.

as a season ticket holder for 9 years now and a skins fan for 30 years, i would just like to say f you danny, f you.

[QUOTE]Last season, an upper deck ticket cost $64. According to a team marketing report conducted by FanCostExperience.com, the average Redskins ticket in 2012 cost $79.13, which ranked 11th in the NFL and third in the NFC, behind the Giants ($111.69) and Cowboys ($110.20).

The Redskins announced that even with the increase, their tickets will “remain among the most affordable in the NFC East.” The Redskins are one of four teams in the division.

FedEx Field opened in 1997. Not that it is the greatest stadium, but how often should they build a new one?

No comment on the ticket prices other than :(

by no means saying they have to build a new one right away, but to remove seats from your stadium because you can't fill it up, to then turn around 2 years later and raise prices??? that just doesnt add up to me

if danny boy wants to raise prices he better figure out a better way to get fans thru the gates in a timely manner, upgrade the turf, and update the pathetic excuse for a bathroom. and thats a minimum.

i dont see how you are relating removing seats to raising prices. if anything, removing seats means they HAVE to raise prices to get more revenue. Teams raising ticket prices is a normal part of business. Expenses go up, so prices go up too. Its a reality we have to accept, not just with Redskins ticket prices, but with everything.

While the improvements wouldn't hurt, let's be honest. If you had the same stadium and the Redskins from the Joe Gibbs 1 era, it would be legitimately sold out. Winning cures all.

Supply and demand at work.

Re: Redskins increase the price of tickets, parking at FedEx Field
 
There is a thread on ES talking about this, and I laughed at the ticket holders talking about "well, it's not so bad since they haven't raised the prices in 6 years." Well, six years ago, the Redskins tickets were some of the highest priced in the NFL, and still had one of the shittiest teams as well. The tickets were so above their real value (in terms of product) that it's taken 6 years just to catch up to what they should be more inline with, and really deserve to be much lower on the list. Hell, I still think they are too expensive considering they do no have a new stadium. This is Danny Snyder at his best. Squeezing the fans dry. It's simply why I will never become a STH, nor will I go to many games. It simply isn't worth it. I'd say the same thing if they were perennial winners every year.

The hilarious part of it all was him comparing his team to 3 others in the same division. That's it? So you are coming in 2nd in a race of 4 people and you are bragging about it? All the while you should be including the rest of the NFL to truly reflect how much Skins fans have been gouged over the years.

They removed seats in the upper level because they really couldn't sell them, nor was the demand there to keep them.

Not sure that's the case. He had insane ticket prices the past 6-8 years and the demand wasn't there. (hence him removing seats) This is Danny trying to capitalize on a winning season.

They removed seats (supply) and thanks to a winning season and a franchise player in RGIII, demand is back up. Not hard to put 2 and 2 together here. I guarantee there's a method to the madness, it's not simply Snyder scheming to F over the fans.

Parking is the one thing that has aways bothered me about FedEx. Not just with Snyder but with the whole decision to build stadium where it is.

Do you know if the $40 parking pass is the minium "guests" will be charged? That seems like more than a 10% increase.

Then how do you explain how the ticket prices sky rocketed before and the team hadn't won jack shit? I think Dan takes advantage of the fan base knowing how loyal they are. There is a reason why the Cowboys games (and others) are littered with opposing fans. It's because this ticket holders can make some of their money back that they are being gouged on.


This is also why I think the Skins are telling people 6-8 months on RGIII as well. Purely for ticket sales. I simply don't agree with the fact that it's just supply and demand [I]alone[/I] driving this price increase. (notice that key word alone)

They also upgraded the video boards, that in itself was a huge improvement. I don't get season tickets, so I can't really weigh in much. But I do know the company I work at just had it's first major increase in 10 years, why, things like gas, costs of goods and services, and the new requirements for healthcare.

I doubt the Skins ticket prices are the only things going up this year.

Didn't the Redskins recently upgrade their video boards too?
