NFL TALKS ABOUT POSSIBILITY OF SUPER-PSL'S
Published March 15, 1995
The NFL yesterday discussed a plan that would put 5,000 choice Super Bowl seats up for sale to fans that would purchase a four-year "personal seat license." The right to buy the seats would cost $10,000 and would be similar to PSLs sold by the Carolina Panthers and the would-be St. Louis Rams. NFL officials say the PSLs would generate $50M every four years with the money going to teams in need of stadium improvements. However, to make 5,000 Super Bowl seats available, teams would have to give up their annual allotment. Browns Owner Art Modell, said stadium issues could be handled collectively: "If the city can't do it or the team can't do it, maybe we can get help by doing it collectively" (Don Pierson, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 3/15).
