Washington Redskins tickets are available for sale on the secondary market as of the 2020 schedule release.
Potential Covid-19 Impact On 2020 NFL Schedule
While the schedule release is a much-needed dose of exciting news for all football fans, there are some major questions marks heading into the 2020 season due to the Coronavirus pandemic. While teams know what teams they'll play, that's about all they know. Whether or not the games happen and if fans are able to attend will depend on how the virus is managed over the next 2-3 months. The league has already canceled all of its International Series games, and the league is rightly considering all possible scenarios.
Based on the varying levels of infection in each NFL city and state, it's possible that some teams may be able to host fans at a reduced capacity while others may not. The Dolphins announced a preliminary plan last week, with a 25% of capacity goal. Based on the below NFL Covid-19 Safety Index, the Dolphins fall within the low-risk category, just barely.
To create the Safety Index, we compared the active cases in each city or state to the national average and then discounted that product by Rt. Rt is a measure of how fast the virus is spreading in each city and state, most easily tracked through Rt.live.

How Much Are 2019 Redskins Tickets
The two most expensive tickets to see the 2019 Redskins are the home opener against the Cowboys and three weeks later against the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. The average asking prices for those games is $261 for the Cowboys game and $263 for the Patriots.
Face value tickets are available for all home games through Ticketmaster. Tickets for the Cowboys game start at $155, $90 for the Bears game, $191 for the Patriots game, $71 for the 49ers, Jets, Giants and Lions game and $90 for the Eagles game.
With new technology, the Redskins and other NFL teams are selling more tickets directly to fans than ever
With the NFL kickoff here, the post-waitlist era of Redskins ticket buying also arrives . With less than two weeks until the home opener, not only are season tickets available for sale, but so are single game tickets for every game, from the home opener against the Colts to the highest-demand games like the Cowboys.
The new approach to ticket selling--specifically actually having tickets to sell--is also impacting the secondary market. According to data from TicketIQ.com, Redskins tickets on the secondary market have an average asking price of $229. That’s up 24 percent from last year’s price and the second-highest price in the last eight years. With so many more tickets available for sale directly from the team, there’s less supply on secondary, which sends up prices.
For the Redskins, who until earlier this year claimed a 20-year waitlist, this is a new and relatively brave model, and likely what the NFL envisions for the future of ticketing. While 2018 will likely mark the year the NFL jump into the single-game ticket selling business. It's a model that more and more teams are testing as well. Most notable of these was the Golden State Warriors in the 2018 NBA finals who did not sell out at the start of the game, as Darren Rovell also tweeted.
Like the Warriors last season, the Redskins this season have realized that they need to be selling when fans are buying. In 2018, that often means in the days and hours before a game. After playing catch-up with the secondary market for almost 20 years, teams are now even in actively playing in last-minute ticket-buy world that Stubhub, Gametime and other secondary sites created and perfected. Underlying the shift is the new Ticketmaster-NFL deal that gives all NFL teams the ability to sell inventory directly on partner sites, including Stubhub.
