More Money From Giants' Meadowland Stadium
THE SUITE LIFE: SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL’s Don Muret reports CSL Marketing Group has been hired “to fortify efforts to sell all 213 suites planned” for the Giants/Jets stadium. Meadowlands Stadium Co. President & CEO Mark Lamping said that CSL was brought in to “to assist his group’s three-person staff and sales representatives from the Jets and Giants.” CSL, whose deal runs through next October, has sold the Giants’ PSL and club seats at the stadium since ’07. Lamping: “CSL has a familiarity with our project, and it is also the kind of company you can hire to come in under a specific time period. It’s much easier than going out and hiring full-time people that would be working themselves out of a job by the time football season starts next year.” Lamping did not indicate “how many units remained to sell, but he confirmed a published report that said 60 percent of the stadium’s suites had been sold as of August” (SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, 10/12 issue).
