Redskins will not change general admission ticket prices in 2012

The Washington Redskins announced on Friday that general admission ticket prices for the 2012 season will not rise, marking the seventh consecutive season they have gone unchanged.

The Redskins’ general admission prices currently range from $29 to $99, according to the team. The ticket prices have increased three times since 1999, but haven’t changed since the 2006 season.

“We are sensitive to our loyal fans during these difficult economic times,” Bruce Allen, the Redskins’ executive vice president and general manager, said in a news release. “We look forward to a historic season and continuing to further enhance the fan experience at FedExField.”

The Redskins report a sellout streak on season tickets dating to 1966.

Last season the team ripped out roughly 10,000 seats from FedEx Field’s upper deck, dropping the capacity of the stadium to roughly 82,000 seats. The team announced that marked the first stage of a remodeling project that would include the installation of two party decks. At the time, the team said those platforms would be installed in 2012, but a team spokesman said Friday that the Redskins have yet to begin that project.

The Redskins plan to begin the mailing of applications for season ticket renewals later this month, the press release said.
