Tickets for the Washington Redskins’ playoff opener against the Seattle Seahawks are sold out, the team announced Monday.

Season-ticket holders had until late last week to register for playoff tickets in the event that the Redskins captured the NFC East and hosted a game at FedEx Field. As soon as that happened against the Dallas Cowboys, the team made tickets available at the stadium.


It didn’t take long for inventory to go. But, “in the event there are player or visitor team ticket returns, fans are encouraged to check with Ticketmaster for availability,” the team said.

Kickoff is set for 4:30 Sunday afternoon. Parking lots open at 11:30 a.m. and stadium gates at 1:30 p.m. The Redskins in the press release encouraged fans to arrive early and enjoy the early game. The Indianapolis Colts visit the Baltimore Ravens at 1 p.m.

Sunday night’s victory over the Cowboys included a raucous crowd of 82,845.

“The fans were great, man. They were passionate,” nose tackle Barry Cofield said. “Had a couple games there where it was Giants and Ravens where they had a lot of fans, man. I was disappointed. But our fans were strong today. Hopefully they’ll be strong again next week, and we’ve got to take advantage of our home field advantage.”
