The Washington Redskins are rolling out a series of exclusive giveaways for their season ticket holders. Several sweepstakes are lined up for Redskins season ticket owners who renew their plan in the coming weeks.
In an official release, the organization announced season ticket owners who renew now through April 1 will be entered to win ten prizes, with drawings taking place each week. The first prize offered is free season tickets and a private lunch with former Redskins QB and Super Bowl MVP Doug Williams. That drawing will take place February 21 and subsequent winners will be announced every Friday before the final drawing on April 1. Other prizes include suite access to an event at FedExField and a trip for two to Super Bowl LV in Tampa, plus others that will be revealed at a later date.
Buyers are encouraged to renew their season ticket packages early, as this reflects the number of times their name will be entered in the drawings. Those who bought their 2020 tickets before February 21 are given seven entries into the final drawing, while those who buy before February 28 receive six entries. This subsequent pattern will be applied up until the final drawing day of April 1.
In addition to the new sweepstakes program, season ticket holders will retain their status as Redskins Gold members. Membership perks include access to team cornerstone events, expedited service at FedExField concession stands, exclusive stadium entry, discounted food pricing, NFL Game Pass and RedZone streaming, preferred hospitality and pre-sale access to other FedExField events.
The incentives to keep season ticket holders comes after Washington finished the 2019 season a lackluster 3-13. Ticket prices tumbled amid the losing streak and the Redskins were significantly out-priced in the local market by the XFL’s D.C. Defenders in their debut a few weeks ago.
