THE BIG JACK UNDERGOING CHANGES AFTER ITS INAUGURAL SEASON
Published February 19, 1998
Jack Kent Cooke Stadium will undergo renovations "costing several million dollars" to be completed before the '98 NFL season, according to Solomon & Heath of the WASHINGTON POST. Redskins President John Kent Cooke said that "the additions would be privately financed" and that "there would be no increase in ticket prices for the upcoming season." The planned changes include "enclosing with glass the concourses surrounding the two levels of executive suites, plus the club level, and creating a new enclosed lobby." The four stadium restaurants will also be "upgraded." By the end of the '97 season, 3,000 of the 15,000 stadium club seats were unsold, and "about 15" of the 208 luxury boxes also were unsold (WASHINGTON POST, 2/19).
