GIANTS/JETS SELL MEMBERSHIP TO 50 CLUB; BONUS ELEVATOR MUSIC
Published November 1, 1995
The NJ Sports and Exposition Authority recently sent 75,000 brochures to Jets and Giants season ticket holders and those on a waiting list to market their new 50 Club, an 800-seat luxury section to be built during Giants Stadium renovations. A lottery will choose those "subscribers" who get a chance to buy two to four seats each. Membership is $7,500 per seat, per year. The N.Y. DAILY NEWS puts the total cost at $23,600 per seat, which includes membership, game tickets, parking, elevator entrance, club restaurant service and other amenities. The teams and NJSEA will earn $2M/year from the Club, with each team getting $400,000 more in ticket revenue (Barry Meisel, N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 11/1).
