They've had my season ticket money for 44 years.

The Skins have a 90,000 seat stadium and still have 140,000+ names on the waiting list.

Thats because they are buying into the Tailgate Club, Club Seats or Dream Seats. Those are available pretty quickly. However, they are extremely expensive. For normal, face-value tickets the line is actually years long...

Re: Redskins | Team leads in regular season home attendance

The list works very differently now that Snyder owns the team. He was unhappy with the long waits people had had so they institued policies that to diminish it. Basically now whenever you get a letter with some type of offer for general admission ticks you have to accept or you are removed from the list. They tell you that in the smal small print. There are lots of people now who think they are on the list and aren't really anymore.

Now the list for getting parking passes? That list might be 10 million strong. Or so it seems.

There are two lists now, also. One for regular admission and one for "premium" seating.

Re: Redskins | Team leads in regular season home attendance

if you're on the list, make sure you actually call them to get your current queue number. people that call in every so often seem to move faster.

Re: Redskins | Team leads in regular season home attendance

I am number 67,984. I try to request it via email a couple times a year.

They told me that there are Premium Seats available now.

I've been on the list for 10 years and get a call every summer asking if I want tic's. Some day when I have a little more $$ I will jump on them. Then again once we win the Super Bowl this year I'm sure the tickets will become a lot harder to get.

I put myself on the list a few years ago with the intention of leaving my spot in line to my children in my will
