You're probably not going to
find too many bars or restaurants to hang out before the game so tailgating may
be the best way to satisfy that burger and beer fix before kickoff.
Is FedEx Field metro accessible?
The stadium can be Metro
accessible if you're willing to walk about a mile from the station to the
stadium. It's doable however, it doesn't make for much of a tailgate.
FedEx Field allows tailgating in all parking areas except the Platinum
and Platinum Reserved lots.

outdoor party with friends.
for events other than Redskins games
Expect a skeleton crew to be
working the parking lots for events other than Redskins games. This means less security roaming the
parking lots and no one directing traffic after the event is over – which equates
to long traffic lines getting out of the stadium. For fans who need more than one parking space for their
tailgate, stadium policy says those folks will be directed to the back of the
parking lot. For the most part, fans do a pretty good job of policing
each other and rarely will you have to see security arrive to enforce the
time do the gates open?
Parking lots usually open
four hours prior to kickoff. However, make sure to check with the stadium
prior to each game as tailgaters may be allowed to enter earlier - especially
for college football games and special events.
should I park?
Typically, for events other
than Redskins games there is no reserved parking and you will be able to park
anywhere. It sounds great until
you scratch the surface and realize that parking is already included in your
ticket price – so in reality every single person is paying for parking
regardless if they drive or not.
there portable restrooms?
Portable restrooms are
located throughout the stadium parking lots but you can expect long lines to
form once the tailgating crowd arrives. There are plenty of trash
dumpsters located in the parking lot so it's pretty easy to clean up after
information to know before making the trip to FedEx Field
Maryland does not allow sales
of beer or wine in grocery stores or convenience stores. In some counties,
alcohol is not even sold on Sundays. Alcoholic beverages are sold through
private retail stores rather than state stores however, this rule varies
between counties. Montgomery County, for instance, only allows sales of alcohol
in ABC or state stores, so you should know your local ordinances. Local laws also
determine the hours and days that alcohol may be sold.
