SBD/6/Facilities Venues


     The Redskins announced seating features and prices for their
new 78,000-seat stadium due to open in 1997, as well as a new
name for the site it is built on -- Raljon, MD.  Dave Sell of the
WASHINGTON POST writes that season ticket prices will rise $5 per
game for '97.  Seats in the upper deck will cost $40-60 a game,
while club seats will cost $995-1,995 a year.  Executive suites
range from $59,950 to $159,950 per year with five-, seven- and
ten-year leases. (WASHINGTON POST, 5/5).  In addition, Landover,
MD, the locality in which the stadium will be built, will take a
back seat to Raljon, a combination of the names of Redskins Owner
Jack Kent Cooke's sons -- Ralph and John.  Cooke has already
obtained an official U.S. Postal Service designation for Raljon
with a four-digit add-on to the zip code.  Stan Fetter, President
of a local civic group:  "Every time I think I've seen the most
obstinate and obtuse and self-centered thing that Jack Kent Cooke
can do, he comes up with something new" (WASHINGTON POST, 5/5).
