Biggs: Redskins freeze general admission ticket prices

The fans in Washington will not be paying for Mike Shanahan and his new coaching staff this season, not in the form of increased general admission ticket prices, any way.

The Redskins announced this afternoon that they will freeze prices for those seats in the 2010 season. It’s the fifth season in a row the prices have remained fixed between $29 and $99. Of course, the Redskins make huge money off their suite tickets, and FedEx Field is the second-largest venue in the NFL after Jerry Jones opened Dallas Cowboys Stadium this season.

“It’s always a challenge to maintain ticket prices from year-to-year, but we wanted to show the fans how much we appreciate their support, especially in difficult economic times,’’ said the team’s CEO, David Donovan.

According to the Redskins, the Team Marketing Report ranks the average general admission ticket to a game at FedEx Field 10th in the NFL.

And now for the important news, the team announced that season ticket renewal notices will be mailed in February.
