Stadium Will Be Sold Out This Season
The Jets "put single-game tickets for the entire season on sale" at 10:00am ET yesterday, and the team last night announced that they "sold out their allotment of single-game tickets" for the first two regular-season games, according to John Brennan of the Bergen RECORD. The single-game tickets were "only for upper-deck seats, which have no personal seat licenses for Jets games." Jets Exec VP/Business Operations Matt Higgins said that "fewer than 2,000 seats per game were available, with season ticket holders having the right to purchase the seats at face value" for $95-125 per game. After 4:00pm yesterday, "any fan was able to try and purchase the seats," but "with a $10 surcharge" (Bergen RECORD, 9/1). In N.Y., Kevin Armstrong reports "plenty of tickets -- approximately 16,000 in all -- were made available" yesterday, but the Jets insist that they will be sold out for the season "by opening night." Higgins: "We're about 96% sold out. With certainty, I can say that we'll be sold out by next week. We're just about there." Higgins said that PSL sales "throughout the stadium are nearly complete, after undergoing a significant slash in price in June," though there are "still available club seats." Meanwhile, a Giants spokesperson said that the Giants have "completely sold out" their Sept. 12 home opener against the Panthers and their Nov. 14 game against the Cowboys, "not including the club-seat PSLs they still have not sold" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 9/1). The Jets "previously had said the upper bowl was sold out," but Higgins said that "discounted PSL seats led to a 'vast migration' from the upper bowl to lower sections, freeing the tickets now being made available" (NEWSDAY, 9/1).
