The Washington Redskins said last night they will put approximately 5,000 tickets for Saturday's first-round playoff game against Detroit at FedEx Field on sale to the general public starting at 7 a.m. Wednesday. The tickets will be available at the stadium box office, as well as TicketMaster locations to be announced Tuesday.
The ticket prices for the Redskins' first home playoff game since the 1992 NFC championship game range from $65 to $75, $10 above the regular season charge but "below the additional fee recommended by the NFL for playoffs," said team owner Daniel M. Snyder. There will be a $5 service charge per ticket. Some premium club seats will be included in the sale.
Parking fees at the stadium will be $20 per car, with a $20 charge to park at US Airways Arena that includes shuttle bus service to the stadium.
Season ticket holders and those on the season ticket waiting list were given the first chance to buy the tickets and those sales continue.
"We felt very strongly that we wanted to give nonticket holders the opportunity to see this game," Snyder said. "We are still taking orders from season ticket holders and wait-list customers . . . but the general public tickets are something we wanted to do for our fans who don't normally get tickets."
Redskins President Stephen Baldacci said each customer would be allowed to purchase a maximum of four tickets. He added that fans who wait in line for tickets at the stadium Wednesday will be served refreshments.
