Falcons Fall Short Of Goal Of PSL Sellout By Home Opener; Around 2,500 Still Available
The Falcons will play their first regular-season game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium "without having met the organization's long-time goal to sell out of personal seat licenses," according to Tim Tucker of the ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION. AMB Sports & Entertainment Senior VP & CRO Michael Drake said that "slightly more than 57,000 seat licenses have been sold, leaving 'around 2,500' still available." It was the "first time" the club had acknowledged that the PSLs "won't be sold out by Sunday night's game" against the Packers. Drake said, "We've still got a little bit of work. It's about 96 percent (sold)." Tucker noted the sale of PSLs, which are "required for the right to buy Falcons season tickets, will continue as long as seats are available." Drake said that the Falcons "still don't plan to sell single-game tickets." He added that seats with unsold PSLs will be "added to the group-sales inventory for now." The Falcons also have had to "sell some seat licenses more than once because of defaults on purchase contracts" (AJC.com, 9/11).
