FedExField - Hyattsville, MD

Redskins fans aren’t the only ones who will claim that home games at FedExField are some of the most popular of the football season—there are numbers to back it up. Not only is the stadium the third largest in the country in terms of seating capacity, but season tickets have been sold out for years. The current waitlist is 150,000 names long.

Besides serving as the home of the NFL’s Washington Redskins, the stadium also hosts international soccer games and concerts, including performances by the Rolling Stones, Coldplay and U2.

Fans enjoy a variety of concession stands scattered throughout the stadium, including chicken and waffles, craft beer and a variety of natural sausages. The 21-and-older crowd can find a healthy cheering section in several party zones, such as the Tailgate Club and the Touchdown Club. Parking is available in 24 different onsite lots; visitors can either purchase a permit in advance or pay in cash at the lot entrance. FedExField is also accessible through the Metrorail system—take the blue line and hop off at the Morgan Boulevard Station.

Tailgating is allowed and encouraged throughout the various lots. The venue asks fans to keep the environment safe and inclusive. Visitors must pass a security checkpoint before entering. Fans can bring in necessary items in small, transparent bags. Prohibited items include outside food and drink, seat cushions, umbrellas, noisemakers and hard-sided containers.
