about FedExField

FedExField, originally Jack Kent Cooke Stadium is a football stadium located in Prince George's County, Maryland, United States. It is the home of the Washington Redskins football team and is the largest stadium in the National Football League, with 85 000 seats.

The stadium was built to replace Washington's RFK Stadium and opened to the public on September 14, 1997, bringing all kinds of football fans to the stadium and becoming a fantastic site for Landover events, concerts and more.

FedExField hosted a variety of special events, including several college football games: the 1998 game between the University of Notre Dame and the United States Naval Academy, as well as the 2004 Black Coaches Association Classic between the University of Southern California Trojans and Virginia Tech. It also hosted four preliminary matches and one quarterfinal doubleheader in the 1999 Women's World Cup. During the July 2005 World Series of Football, D.C. United hosted Chelsea F.C. there; the stadium did not sell out, but the 31,473 spectators represented D.C. United's third-highest ever home. Numerous other events, including many big-time concerts took place at the venue as well.

The stadium has five levels including standard seating and three tiers of luxury suites. Recent improvements comprise a new text message traffic alert system, new HD video boards, complete renovation and replacement of the stadium's video control room, and the installation of the locker of the late Sean Taylor for viewing on the club level.

Whether it's the hottest concert, a theater show, or a sporting event, you can't beat FedExField for an unforgettable night out.
