Success comes with a price. For the first time in seven years -- and coming off their first playoff appearance since 2007 -- the Redskins said they have increased the cost of general admission tickets for the upcoming season. They also raised the cost of parking to $40.
According to a press release from the team, most ticket prices will increase by no more than 10 percent. Though general parking increased, the cost of reserved spaces, bus/RV and limo pass prices remain unchanged.
The Redskins won the NFC East for the first time in 13 seasons and the arrival and subsequent play of quarterback Robert Griffin III energized the fan base. The Redskins, according to the press release, have made a number of improvements at the stadium the past three years: installing two 100-foot-long high-definition video boards, eight digital ribbon boards and the NFL's largest video wall, among other upgrades. They also have lowered seating capacity to 85,000 from a high of 91,704 during this same period.
Fans can start renewing season tickets Monday, the day after the Super Bowl.
