Landover, MD 20785

Name: Fed Ex Field

Fed Ex Field


Today, FedEx Field is one of the premier stadiums in the NFL. After 30 years of playing at RFK Stadium, then owner Jack Kent Cooke envisioned a new stadium for the Redskins in 1987. After nine years of negotiations, Cooke finally found a location to build a new stadium in Prince George County, Maryland. Construction began immediately on the stadium. Cooke never saw the stadium completed. He died several months before the stadium was completed. Initially, the stadium was named, Jack Kent Cooke Stadium.

The Washington Redskins played their first game at Jack Kent Cooke Stadium on September 14, 1997. With 85,000 seats, Jack Kent Cooke Stadium became the largest stadium in the NFL. Three tiers of red and yellow seats circle the entire playing field. Two video-boards are located beyond both endzones. In 1999, Daniel Snyder bought the Redskins. The naming rights were sold to Federal Express, and Jack Kent Cooke Stadium was renamed FedEx Field. Also in 1999, $35 million in improvements were completed at FedEx Field. Another $20 million of improvements were completed in time for the 2000 season, which included a new owners club suite level, escalators to the upper deck, and additional seats were added. FedEx Field has many amenities including several restaurants that overlook the field and a Redskins Hall of Fame. Displayed on the upper level balcony, circling all the way around the seating bowl, is the Redskins Ring of Fame that contains 40 names of Redskins players and coaches. Located above the north endzone are championship flags that commemorate the Redskins playoff history.
