Washington Redskins Preseason Details
The Washington Redskins spent much of their early history wandering from preseason location to location. During the team’s first training camp in 1932, the team practiced at City Stadium in Lynn, Massachusetts. Washington then moved to Northwestern University, Eastern Washington University, and Georgetown University. The team ventured to Occidental College in Los Angeles for 16 years of training camp. Redskins fans have enjoyed the team’s regional focus in the modern era including 31 years at Dickinson College in Pennsylvania and a permanent move to the team’s headquarters in 2003.
Fans of the Redskins can attend preseason practices for free as long as they request entry passes through the team’s mobile ticketing app. The training camp schedule typically features theme days that appeal to a broad range of football fans. The Washington Redskins often hold a military appreciation day to recognize veterans and active-duty personnel. The annual Celebration in the End Zone event allows fans to meet past players, enjoy food, and participate in raffles with purchase of event ticket. Fan Appreciation Day, Kids Day, and Youth Football Day provide opportunities for the team to connect with their fans before the regular season kicks off.
The Redskins have played at FedEx Field since 1997. The stadium opened as Jack Kent Cooke Stadium in honor of the team’s former owner but changed to FedEx in 1999. Club, loge, and suite ticket holders can access the EA Sports Players Lounge, which hosts live post-game music and football video games. Every attendee of a Redskins game enjoy access to concessions from area eateries like Ben’s Chili Bowl and Paisano’s.
Washington’s biggest rival in the preseason is the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens, who entered the league in 1996, appear annually on the Redskins preseason schedule. Local fans of both teams don’t travel far with 30 miles separating their stadiums. Washington developed a preseason rivalry against the New York Jets over multiple preseasons. Redskins fans have also relived past Super Bowl matchups with preseason games against the Denver Broncos and the Buffalo Bills.
The team’s lengthy history in the NFL means memorable preseason performances by prominent players and coaches. Rookie quarterback Sammy Baugh used the team’s exhibitions in 1937 to introduce the team to Washington after relocation from Boston. Newly named coach Joe Gibbs used the 1981 preseason as a launching pad for 12 years of success that included three Super Bowl victories. In 1991, quarterback Mark Rypien sharpened his skills in the preseason on the way to a Super Bowl victory and a Super Bowl MVP.
