Washington Football Team to Open FedEx Field at Full Capacity for 2021 Season

The Washington Football Team will allow fans to return to FedEx Field at full capacity for the 2021 season.

Jason Wright, president of the Washington Football Team, said safety and public health measures at the Landover, Maryland, stadium will continue to be implemented.

The state currently allows outdoor venues to operate at 50% capacity.

“As we have always said, the safety of our fans, employees, coaching staff and players are our top priority,” Wright said in a statement. “We take our responsibility to create a safe return for fans very seriously, and we do so with the confidence and collaboration of our state and local public health authorities with whom we stay in constant contact to assure proper protocols are in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“Following the 2020 season, our organization was praised for its infection control approaches, and we now endeavor to build on this track record by providing a safe and fun 2021 gameday experience for our fans, the best in all of football.”

The team will waive all single-game ticket fees for the first 24 hours, starting at 8 p.m. Wednesday when the 2021 schedule is released, WTTG-TV (Channel 5) reported.

Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks praised the team’s decision.

“I am hopeful that we can all come back to FedEx Field in the fall and watch our defending NFC East champions make another playoff run,” Alsobrooks said, WTTG reported. “And just like the players on the field, we must all continue to work as a team off the field to make sure all of our neighbors and loved ones get vaccinated.”
