Going to my first ever away game at Fed Ex Field Thursday.

My brother and I are making a road trip down this week. What do I need to know about the place before I go? Who else will be there from BBI?
bring water purifiers with you and an umbrella and boots

for the raw sewage
It's about as charming as our toaster of a stadium.

It's not near anything in the "DC" area. Traffic used to be a disaster, but since covid it's much more manageable. Parking is expensive. The fans in the nose bleeds are dicks, but I've never gotten in a fight.
I've been there a few times...

FedEx is a horrible stadium and experience. That's why Snyder want to get the hell out of there.

Basically one way in, one way out. I would plan on leaving early to get there because traffic on the Beltway is going to be brutal.
Horrible stadium....

Just horrible.

Having said that....root us on to victory!
Fed ex parking is a disaster

Once went with a friend and it took us over an hour and a half to get the bus to the parking lot we were in.
I've either had special parking because tickets were from a box owner or I park up the hill from the stadium for about 30 or so. Up the hill at a car dealership. It's a hike back up but oh I was on beltway in moments.
Try getting special parking from stub hub.

see you there

I try to go every year as I'm south of there a couple hours. Get a parking pass. $50 bucks is worth it.

I actually find the stadium and fans to be very welcoming to away fans. Nobody is a true asshole. It's not charming, it's in the middle of nowhere and its a pain to get in and out of. But frankly I've seen the Giants win there so many times it's like our home away from home. Good away game to go to IMO
Clash of the titans.

You may see a win (certainly hope so), but you'll *definitely* see bad football. Enjoy, to the extent possible.
I’ve been a few times

Had a parking pass the first time and had a great time tailgating but was a cluster fuck getting out of there. After that we always took the train to and from our hotel. One thing for sure plan on spending a good amount of coin the place is a shit hole but charge like it’s a 5 star resort.
Some of the best games I went to

where at FedEx. It's a total shithole, but we always had a great time. My friends and I used to make it a yearly ritual to do a weekend trip to DC, and take the metro to the game.

The one time we drove was a Monday nighter (Larry Donnell's career game), and I agree with the sentiment that traffic leaving was an absolute cluster fuck.
