A Preview of Redskins Tickets in September

The Washington Redskins will return to the field this Monday night for the first time since being eliminated in the NFC Wildcard round last season against Seattle.  RGIII is medically cleared to start so fans are eagerly awaiting Griffin’s first game back. Tickets on the secondary market remain high, so Redskins fans are clearly spending their hard earned money to attend the home opener at FedEx Field this Monday evening.

The Redskins schedule this month has only two home games, both against teams aspiring for postseason glory this year.  Philadelphia is now led by former Oregon head coach Chip Kelly and while much of the core players from the vaunted “Dream Team” of 2011 have now moved on to different teams, Vick, McCoy and Jackson all remain so there is still plenty of talent on the team.  Meanwhile, Detroit is coming off a ghastly 4-12 campaign but made the playoffs the previous season and were the victims of several very close defeats.

Both games will not be easy contests and fans should be witness to some highly entertaining football.  Below is a ticket breakdown for each game, including average and get-in ticket price.

Monday, September 9th vs. Philadelphia – Average ticket price = $207, Get-in price = $78

The get-in price is technically $78, but that will only get you standing room tickets.  The first listing for actual seats is $93.  That means this game has the highest get-in prices for standing room and seating than any other game this season, other than the home finale against Dallas.  Obviously Griffin’s return is keeping ticket prices high, and add in the fact that it’s a Monday night game against a divisional foe, and you have yourself an expensive ticket.

Sunday, September 22nd vs. Detroit – Average ticket price = $180, Get-in price = $39

Week 3’s matchup against Detroit has much lower ticket prices, with an average at $180, $27 less expensive than the opener.  Standing room starts at $39 and actual seating begins at $66.  If you’d like to sit in the lower level, the cheapest spot is $124 in Section 111, right behind the end zone.
