  • RAVENS FANS BUY CLOSE TO 90% OF SEASON TICKETS

         The Ravens have sold nearly 90% of the season tickets
    available for their debut season, "despite above average prices
    and an unpopular licensing requirement," according to Jon Morgan
    of the Baltimore SUN.  Wednesday was the deadline for first-day
    priority and all applications received by then will be randomly
    sorted by a computer and assigned seats. Applications received
    after that will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.
    Since Wednesday, the team has processed 50,118 tickets with
    additional requests left to finish.  That represents about 88% of
    the 57,000 season tickets available for next season.  Ticket
    prices averaged just over $400 for a 10-game plan along with a
    $100 deposit per ticket on a seat license for the team's new
    stadium. Morgan writes Ravens officials, "who had been privately
    anxious in the past few weeks," were happy with the news.  Team
    spokesperson Kevin Byrne said they figured 30,000-40,000 sales a
    "respectable showing" (Baltimore SUN, 6/14).
