Was the Redskins Training Camp a Touchdown?

08.29.13

The Redskins training camp has come and gone, so now many are wondering how it went. While there aren’t any final numbers in yet, we have been able to gather some data to give a good idea of the success of training camp.

Redskins fans outperform any other NFL team

We pulled training camp attendance numbers from other NFL teams. While the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers are typically the gold standard for attendance with around 100,000 or more attendees, the Redskins outperformed even those numbers!

Here are the training camp attendance numbers along with those reported from other teams:

Redskins: 165,571

Broncos: 86,000 (new team record)

Vikings: 69,000

Panthers: 45,463 (new team record)

Seahawks: 37,125

Look at what Mike Shanahan had to say:

“It went as good as it possibly could. The field, weight room and (athletics) training room were excellent.”

Stats from 165,571 to 1

In a recent Style Weekly article, it reported some fun statistics from 1 to 165,571 about the Redskins training camp:

We are extremely pleased with the success of the first Redskins training camp in Richmond at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center and are proud to have been a part of the “team” that made it possible. Although the final report from the local visitor’s bureau is not complete, we can confidently say this year’s training camp was definitely a touchdown.
