The Redskins have increased the price of general admission tickets and parking for the 2013 season, the team announced Thursday.

The price of “most seats” will increase by “no more than 10 percent,” a team-issued press release stated. Parking will be $40.


General admission ticket and parking prices were unchanged for the previous seven seasons.

The acquisition of quarterback Robert Griffin III last April, followed by the team’s first NFC East Division championship in 13 years, invigorated the fan base in 2012. Any ticket demand increase that might have spawned is met by a decrease in supply.

Team management reduced the capacity of FedEx Field to 85,000 from 91,704 in 2010, according to the Redskins’ 2010 and 2012 media guides. The stadium still is the largest in the NFL.

According to the team’s press release: “Fans will be treated to a number of upgrades to FedExField in 2013, including parking and public safety initiatives as part of the Redskins commitment to create a safe and enjoyable fan experience both inside the stadium and in the parking lots.”

The period in which fans can renew season tickets begins Monday, Feb. 4.
