Affordable Redskins season tickets available at StubHub
Here's something weird: StubHub is currently offering 942 season tickets to Redskins games, many of the non-club, non-premium variety. That doesn't speak very highly to the market savvy of tens of thousands of Redskins fans signing up for the waitlist every year. Hey, tens of thousands of Redskins fans, just go buy your season tickets on StubHub!
The prices on these seats vary wildly, and I'm not sure what numbers they're actually selling at. But here's one interesting example. A friend of mine is paying $890 a year for his seats in row 8 of a 400-level section. StubHub has season tickets for sale in row 5 of the exact same section for $900. The site also has tickets available in row 8 of what appears to be an extremely similar 400-level section for $790.
Also, my same friend was paying $710 a year when he was higher up in that same 400-level section. Yet StubHub will let you move one section closer to the 50-yard line and buy season tickets in row 19 for $650.
Of course, the face-value season tickets you'd buy from the Redskins include the two preseason home games, while these StubHub packages do not, so maybe that explains things. And if you're buying season tickets on StubHub, you're violating team policy and not assuring yourself of the same seats in the 2011 season. Also, maybe people didn't know these season tickets were for sale, though now they should.
The Redskins, incidentally, say that selling season-ticket packages is against their policies, and that demand for general-admission season tickets remains strong.
"For the Dallas game I wish we had another 10,000 tickets to sell, because if we did they'd be gone," COO David Donovan told me.
