Construction on FedEx Field, located in Landover, Md., was completed in 1997. The stadium was first named after then-owner Jack Kent Cooke until Memphis, Tennessee-based FedEx (NYSE: FDX) purchased sponsorship rights in 1999 in a $207 million, 27-year deal. Between 2001 and 2010, the Redskins had the seventh-worst record in the NFL, but attendance at games still increased more than 6%. Last year, despite a 6-10 record, the stadium averaged home game attendance of 83,172, the second most in the NFL.
