Redskins will remove thousands of seats from their stadium for the 3rd time in 5 years
The Washington Redskins once had the largest stadium in the entire NFL, but over the past five seasons, the team has taken out thousands of seats numerous times.
The Washington Redskins, who a couple years ago had a waiting list for season tickets of more than 200,000 names, have removed thousands of seats from FedEx Field.
The team listed its stadium capacity at 85,000 last season, but attendance never topped 81,000 and averaged less than 78,000. The Redskins led the NFL with an average attendance of 88,090 in 2007 but have averaged fewer than 80,000 four seasons in a row.
