49ers are using them at their new stadium and Jets/Giants used PSLs at MetLife Stadium.
Doesn't mean it's a good idea moving forward.
At a time when the NFL is trying to entice people to choose to attend games in person, the application of an $80,000 PSL to 1,000 seats in the 49ers forthcoming stadium hasn’t deterred folks from signing up.
According to Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle, the 1,000 tickets costing $375 per game and 80 large for the lifetime of the stadium are nearly sold out.
Not everyone is reacting well to the new prices. 66-year-old Henry Gross has season tickets on the 50-yard line at Candlestick Monster Park (or whatever they call the place) at $129 per game. To keep the seats, he’ll have to pay $350 per ticket, plus a one-time PSL of $30,000 for each seat.
“The sentimental side of me says, yes, absolutely, even if I had to mortgage my entire estate,” Gross told Ostler. “But the realistic side of me says, why would I do that? So I can tell someone I’m now 65 years as a season-ticket holder? I love and cherish that, but nobody in my family, and none of my friends, think it’s a good investment. Not even the ones that I take to games.
“I took [the 49ers' proposal] to two people I’m close to, guys who are much wealthier than I am. They had been season-ticket holders in the past. I asked each, independently, would they like the rights? Is it a good deal? Both of them told me it’s horrible.”
The Bay Area is in no danger of losing the 49ers nor do they lack a Stadium to play their games.
Why not bend over the Public to line the 49ers owners pockets with even more cash?
