FedEx Field History
Home of the Washington Redskins of the NFL, FedEx Field is just one of those places that every
football fan needs to get out to sooner or later, as it's always packed with passion and enthusiasm that you just can't duplicate
anywhere else. Ever since it first opened in 1997, FedEx Field has been the place for football in the nation's capital, with
85,000 fans routinely packing into the stands to be a part of the action as the Redskins take to the field against all the
top teams in the league. With a slew of great games each and every year, it's always a good time to head out and see what
all the buzz is about.
But it isn't just a great place for Redskins football, as it has also hosted a bevy of unbelievable
concerts that make FedEx Field one of the best places around for live entertainment. Over the years, you might have been able
to catch shows by The Rolling Stones, Metallica, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Muse and many, many more, providing plenty of thrills
for music lovers as well as die-hard football fans. Once you're there in the stands, whether it's for a big concert or football
game, you'll be glad that you're not anywhere else.
When the Redskins hit the field to take on
an intense competitor, there is only one place to be, and it definitely isn't sitting on your couch watching on your disappointing
flatscreen. Get out and see a game filled to the brim with playmakers that know a thing or two about putting on a show as
the Redskins look to make some major noise in the NFC East, though that's never easy against teams like the Giants, the Eagles
and the Cowboys. But the Redskins also have another very talented team bursting with the stars of both today and tomorrow,
making them a team to watch out for as they look to make their move up the conference standings once again this season.
Did you know that the Redskins were originally called the Boston Braves?
Back in the early
1930s, a long time before FedEx Field or even RFK Stadium, this franchise was actually playing in Boston as the Boston Braves
– a name that was also once given to a baseball team. They would be renamed the Redskins not long afterwards and then
moved to Washington in 1937, where they found a permanent home.
If you don't know about the Redskins'
fans, you'll be in for a real education when you get out to FedEx Field to see it all for yourself in another bench-gripping
season of football. Though Washington D.C. has the reputation of being a great theater and concert city, you're way off if
you think it doesn't have an amazing sports scene as well, as Washington D.C. is just one of those cities that has a little
bit of everything. And it all comes together with the passion of the fans at FedEx Field, as they bring the whole football
experience to the next level on the regular.
