Last season, the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants opened up JerryWorld in front of a record-breaking crowd of 105,121. The Washington Redskins won’t beat this gaudy number when they open up a revamped FedEx Field on Sunday night against Dallas, buy they fully intend on packing the house in a manner similar to their rivals.
In a recent appearance on CNBC’s “Strategy Sessions,” diminutive Redskins’ owner Daniel Snyder couldn’t help but gush over his excitement for the 2010 season, adding that he believes that a record-breaking crowd will be in attendance for the team’s season opener against the hated Cowboys next Sunday.
"We've been fortunate here at the Redskins, we think we'll have a record crowd this weekend, this Sunday night for the Dallas Cowboy game," Snyder said, per the Washington post. "And from my personal perspective, we feel that it's been going pretty well here, even though we've had a tough season last year. We're looking forward to getting it going now.
"We hope to have over 90,000, a record at FedEx Field, and just hopefully beat them Cowboys."
