LANDOVER, Md. – The Washington Redskins will kick off Burgundy Week in the greater Washington, D.C. area with social contests, giveaways, and special gameday elements to get fans ready for Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys at FedExField.
The Redskins encourage all fans to use the hashtag #BeatDallas to show their support throughout the week for a chance to be featured on the Redskins’ social platforms. Ten winners with the most passionate messages will be selected to win a pair of tickets to the game.
Alumnus Chris Cooley will also be searching for fans wearing burgundy and gold throughout D.C., Maryland and Virginia this week to reward Redskins fans with autographed items and other prizes.
“We want our fan base to come to FedExField amped up and ready to cheer on our team for the biggest home game of the season so far,” said Steve Ziff, Chief Marketing Officer. “It’s our first divisional game, and it’s against our storied rivals. We need our fans now more than ever.”
The Redskins Fan Team will become the Kickoff Crew for this Sunday to rally fans to enter the stadium and witness a special kickoff message before the game begins. Exclusive elements for this game include a halftime performance by the Howard University Showtime Marching Band, a pregame concert in Lot A by country duo LOCASH, and Beat Dallas themed food and merchandise items available throughout the stadium.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at email@example.com
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
