The Washington Redskins are turning the upper deck into a party place.

The Redskins are ripping out thousands of seats in the end zone nosebleed sections of FedEx Field to construct ''Party Decks,'' reducing the capacity of one of the NFL's largest stadiums.

The team said Tuesday it will sell standing-room-only tickets to the decks, which are expected to be ready in time for the 2012 season.

The remodeling job will drop the stadium's capacity from 91,704 to about 85,000, still the NFL's largest for routine games. The Dallas Cowboys' stadium usually seats 80,000 but can be expanded to more than 100,000.

The Redskins don't often give their fans a reason to party. They've have lost 11 of 14 at the stadium and are 42-46 at home since 2000.
