Book Your Charter Plane Flights to Watch NFL in FedExField
FedExField is a football stadium located in Prince George’s County, Maryland, United States. It was once named as the Jack Kent Cooke Stadium. This football stadium is the home of the Washington Redskins football team.
The Washington Redskins team is an American professional football team located in the Metropolitan Area of Washington, D.C.
The Washington Redskins team’s venue prior to the FedExField was the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium that is also located in Washington, D.C.
In 1994, the owner of the Washington Redskins, Jack Kent Cooke, wanted to build a stadium that would be next to the Laurel Park Racecourse, but Cooke thought of looking for another site since space was not enough for parking facilities and support.
In 1997, the stadium opened, and it was named after the late owner of the team. The stadium was named as Jack Kent Cooke Stadium. The site where the stadium was located has been named after the two sons of Jack Kent Cooke, Ralph and John. The site was known as “Raljon”.
Daniel Snyder purchased the Washington Redskins from the Cooke estate, and the naming rights were then sold to FedEx, costing $7.6 million annually. That time, the waiting list for the season tickets of the Washington Redskins was said to be 160,000 names long. But a report has stated that some of the employees made a mistake in selling the tickets.
Even though the Washington Redskins didn’t have the chance to fill the entire stadium, they still continued to strive hard. In fact, last December 30, 2007, they won against the Dallas Cowboys. This game was the most-watched game among all of the games they have played in the team’s history.
In 2000 of January, they fought against the Detroit Lions and won by the score of 27-6. This was the first National Football League playoff game held at the FedExField. Two years after, they fought against the Dallas Cowboys and won by the score of 20-14.
In 2007 of December, a commemorative game was held at the stadium in honor of the football player named Sean Taylor. They fought and defeated by the Buffalo Bills.
The FedExField stadium consists of five levels and these include the lower level, club level, lower and suite levels, and the upper level. The lower level was named after the owner of the Redskins, George Preston Marshall. It is known as the “George Preston Marshall Lower Level”. The club is named after the 20th and 26th head coach of the Redskins, Joe Gibbs. The club is known as the “Joe Gibbs Club Level”. The upper level was named after the commissioner of the National Football League for thirty years, Pete Rozelle. The upper level is known as the “Pete Rozelle Upper Level”.
