Raiders Closing In On PSL Sales Goal As Fervor Builds In Las Vegas
Raiders President Marc Badain said that about 96% of the PSLs for the 65,000-seat Allegiant Stadium "already have been sold, with the sales process expected to wrap up by Thanksgiving," according to Mick Akers of the LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL. The Raiders are "already a big hit" in Las Vegas, as the "surge of buying has surpassed the team's original goal set about three years ago." Badain said, "They've certainly outpaced initial projections. But once we had the deposit list and we knew what the demand was we realized demand was a lot stronger than we initially projected." He added that all premium seating is "accounted for, with some reserved seats available in the first and third decks of the stadium." The Raiders' PSLs "range from $500-$75,000." The Raiders' "robust PSL sales have afforded the team to add" $130M in upgrades to the stadium. Badain said that the wait list for PSLs in the future is "expected to be large." Badain: "Of the deposit campaign there should be 15,000-20,000 that we unfortunately wouldn't have a chance to get to. We're getting deposits everyday. We'll create a different list, probably a ticket waiting list for single tickets or things of that nature" (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 10/5).
