Parking info / prices / times at FedEx Field (MERGED)

Recommended Posts

Don't know about DC venue specifically, but in every prior U2 show I've been too (lots of them), the parking lots (at least some areas in the overall lot structure) open way earlier (because of the GA folks).  Good luck.

back in 2009 for the 360 tour, Parking fee was actually included in the ticket price. ($8) Dan Snyder is obviously not doing that anymore. hes gotta milk every damn dollar he can out of us. $50 + fees is down right criminal. At any rate, in 2009 i got there at about 10:30am. I had heard there was one lot open for GA folks, not knowing where that lot was i just pulled up to the stadium and saw all lots were closed and not opening until 3pm. Gates were closed and big signs that said 3pm opening. I asked a lot attendant who was turning cars away where to go. They directed me to the Grey Lot on Brightseat Road. (Google maps has a nice view of the Grey Lot)  Once i found that lot it wasnt a problem. just a long walk to the GA line from there. Thankfully the queue was on the same side of the stadium as the parking lot. My suggestion is (and what im going to do) in April sometime i will be calling Fed-Ex Field and asking them what the parking procedure is for GA ticket holders and if cash payment for parking is acceptable upon arrival. They may not know details until then or might not even know at that point but if not, Ill call back weekly and find out.

 

Another option if you are driving and not taking Metro. (Ill be driving) if they are NOT opening lots early, there are two metro stops "near by". The Morgan blvd metro station has a small parking lot, and is probably going to be monitored (not recommended to park there, even though its closer to the stadium). The other is the Largo Town Center Station. This has two 4 level parking garages, while it will cost you money to park there it will be much cheaper than the $50 at the stadium. Also keep in mind that this is about a mile and a half walk to the stadium. I would trust my car here in this parking garage or an actual stadium lot. I would feel hesitant about parking my car anywhere else in the area surrounding Fed-Ex Field.

 

Hope this helps and if anyone finds out any info please post here. I will do the same.

Thanks for responding. I'll also pester them with phone calls as the dates approach. Currently only Orange and Green zoned parking available via ticketripoff.

Quick Update on the parking situation for Fed-Ex Field show. 

 

As i mentioned above the "gray lot" is indeed the ONLY cash only lot being advertised at the moment by Fed-Ex field. No info on opening time for this lot. will keep checking.  

Cash Parking

Accessible cash parking operated by the Washington Redskins is located off of Brightseat Road in the Gray Lot. Please use Arena Drive to access Brightseat Rd.

Hey Ya'll, anyone hear when the parking lots will open? For $58.85 (including ticketmaster rip off fees) it'd better be a few hours early.

I approve of your name!!!

Does anybody have any updated parking lot information for FedEx Field? I called yesterday and confirmed that there will be cash lots open on the day of the show. I've never ordered a parking pass in the past, so figured why start now?? In any case, I was told that the Green lot would be cash, but that none of the lots will open until 3pm. I find that to be highly improbable, as I'm sure that there will be many people in the GA line long before 3pm. The person I spoke to was very pleasant, but informed me that they will not be allowing a GA line to form prior to parking lots opening at 3. Again, highly improbable. I'm sure that there must be at least one lot opening before 3pm, but wondering if it will be a cash lot.

I went to the stadium last Saturday (6/3) to figure this out. The security guard I spoke with was also very nice. He said that the only parking lot that will accept cash will be the Gray Lot. In regards to the GA line itself, he mentioned that GA ticket holders will enter through Gate D, and said that more concrete details about times would be released closer to show date (6/20). I also sent an email to FedEx Field, asking about all this stuff. I have yet to hear back from them, but will post their answers here as soon as I get them.

Thanks for your response, evilgenius.I also sent an email to FedEx Field last Monday, but never heard back from them. We're not planning on arriving super early - probably not until 2 - 3pm or even a little later - but it would be nice to know what the parking situation is before we get there. I've been to a lot of shows at FedEx and don't ever recall the parking details being such an issue before, but maybe that's because I was never planning on arriving prior to 3pm for any other show. Since they were selling parking passes in advance, you would think that there would be more info available (like if you need a pass for the lot(s) opening prior to 3pm, etc). If I get any further information, I'll be sure to pass it along.
