This week, a great many Redskins season ticket holders received an e-mail from the team with the subject line “Standing Deck Spaces are Now Available!”
The e-mail had a link to this part of the team’s Web site, with three pictures advertising the 400-level standing deck spaces, which are available for season ticket purchase.
As for the text of the e-mail, it went like this:
Be the first to secure your tickets for the 2012 season!
Upper Level Standing Deck season ticket packages are just $290 (plus tax)!
As a valued Season Ticket Holder of the Washington Redskins, you have the first opportunity before the Redskins Wait List to purchase these tickets. You can add Upper Level Standing Deck spaces to your account today by going to www.REDSKINS.com/MyAccount, login, and click the link at the top of the page.
You can see pictures of the Upper Level Standing Deck spaces by Clicking Here. Options for spaces are just $290 (plus tax) for the season and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Then there was some fine print. More images below. With the two preseason games, I reckon this makes the standing deck seats $29 per game, plus tax. The ad also mentioned that Green Lot parking is available for $350 a season, making it more expensive than the standing room seats.
