Goodell Expresses Optimism For Falcons' New Stadium Proposal During Atlanta Visit
Published November 6, 2012
RAISING DOUGH: In Atlanta, Amy Wenk reports the Falcons are “raising the prices for their best seats.” The Georgia World Congress Center Authority, which operates the Georgia Dome, last Tuesday agreed to “raise premium seating prices" for the '13 NFL season. Club seats and super suite seat licenses will increase 4-5%, meaning a “one-year club seat that cost $2,120 in 2012 will cost $2,225 in 2013." Advertising rates for the signage at the Dome “also will increase.” GWCCA Exec Dir Frank Poe said that the group at last Tuesday's meeting also “passed a resolution to establish a land reserve account,” which sets aside money “to acquire, lease, preserve or dispose of land.” Wenk writes the GWCCA “might need to acquire land if it decides to build a new football stadium" (ATLANTA BUSINESS CHRONICLE, 11/2 issue).
