We know that many fans want to stand up and cheer for their Washington Redskins. But how many are willing to stand up for the whole game and pay for the privilege of doing so?The team has sent an email to fans offering standing room seats in the upper deck of FedEx Field for 290 for the eight regular season games and two preseason games.The standing room area was created when about 10,000 upper deck seats were removed in order to build what the team called party decks. It appears that the name has been dropped but the areas will be ready for the coming season.On their general seating tickets, the Redskins do not list the 10 percent county tax that is paid at purchase. That could well be the case here so expect to pay the additional money if you are interested in the standing room tickets.As of now, the standing room tickets are available for full-season purchase only. Single game sales could happen at some future point if all of the tickets available, estimated by the Washington Post to be 4,000 to 5,000, are not sold as season packages.Since the area is designated as standing room, the tickets do not need to be sold out in order to lift the NFLs blackout restrictions.The lowest priced general admission tickets have a face value of 44, although those prices are grandfathered in for fans who were displaced when the upper-level end zone seats were removed. The cheapest ticket available to new ticket holders is 64.
Stand behind (and in front of) your Redskins
