The Washington Redskins announced yesterday there will be no public sale of tickets for Super Bowl XXII between the Redskins and Denver Broncos on Jan. 31 in San Diego.
Each participating team in the Super Bowl gets 20 percent of the total number of tickets in 68,000-seat Jack Murphy Stadium, meaning the Redskins and Broncos each will get about 13,600 tickets, priced at $100 a ticket as set by the National Football League.
On Jan. 5 the Redskins held a lottery for season-ticket holders who previously had requested Super Bowl tickets. Season-ticket holders who did not get tickets in the lottery will get a full refund by Jan. 31, according to the team.
According to John Kent Cooke, the team's executive vice president, the Redskins held back about 3,000 tickets for players, coaches and the front office, with the remainder going in the lottery pool.
Lottery winners can pick up their tickets at the Redskins ticket office at RFK Stadium between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. from Wednesday until Sunday, Jan. 24. Season-ticket holders must bring their lottery confirmation form and personal identification to the ticket office. If they do not pick up the tickets in person, they must provide a letter of authorization to the person picking up the tickets.
