RALJON REDSKINS ANNOUNCE TICKET RAISE
Published May 6, 1996
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).
