FedEx Field is the home of the Washington Redskins football team and is the largest stadium in the National Football League, with 91,704 seats. Located in Landover, Maryland, the stadium was built to replace Washington’s RFK Stadium in 1997 at a cost of $250 million. FedEx Field has five levels including standard seating and three tiers of luxury suites. Suites are equipped with restrooms, a refrigerator, televisions, a lounge area, two rows of seats and bar stools. Recent improvements included a new text message traffic alert system, new HD video boards, complete renovation and replacement of the stadium’s video control room, and the installation of the locker of the late Sean Taylor for viewing on the club level.

FedEx Field hosts a variety of special events during the off-season. During the summer of 2009, the stadium hosted a performance by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Paul McCartney, the U2 "360" concert and an international friendly (soccer match) between Real Madrid and DC United.

Renovations: In October 2013, NFL owners approved funding for the Washington Redskins to cover a portion of a $27 million renovation of FedEx Field. The stadium renovations will include Wi-Fi and digital signage and other features to be announced at a later date.
