Niners strike gold with new stadium

628x471

Even before beginning to make the case that 2011 was no fluke, the San Francisco 49ers were moving merchandise at their new stadium.  After Sunday’s win over the Packers, remaining seats in the Santa Clara structure could disappear, quickly.

According to the San Jose Mercury News, the 49ers had sold as of Sunday $670 million in tickets and luxury suites for a stadium that doesn’t even open until 2014.  That total includes 70 percent of current season-ticket holders who plunked down the cash that goes along with having Personal Seat Licenses for every seat in the stadium.

Starting Monday, 10,000 fans on the waiting list will get a chance to buy some of the 27,000 in remaining seats at the new venue.  Next month, the gates open to the general public for the remainder of the tickets.

If the 49ers can continue what they started at Lambeau Field on Sunday, there may not be many — if any — tickets left not long after the process opens up to the general public.

    Good for San Fran. They havent had a ton to cheer for since Jerry Rice left.

    A proud franchise with a great history. Getting a new building, and they currently have a nasty defense.

    As a fan on the other side of the country with a QB that I am embarassed is on my team, color me jealous of the 49ers. Definitely a team on their way to the top if you ask me.

    Better allocate about $2 million more in the budget for increased security. Those inmates are gonna need it.

    Greed. That’s all it is.

    This is also great news for Santa Clara. If not for the recent success, I’m sure sales would’ve been considerably lower and the loan financing would’ve been in jeopardy.

    Ok everyone, put your hands over your head and dance to celebrate!

    That’s how it’s done in Frisco, not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    Season ticket holders will get free flowers to put in their hair. You may delete now.

    Not to nitpick, Mike, but they’re called BSLs — Business Seat Licenses. I know. I bought two. You could say the Niners were giving me “the business.”
    As 32-year season ticket holder, I’m addicted. But I do look forward to the next five SBs.

    PSLs may be the real reason that the 49ers and the Raiders don’t want to share a stadium. The Raiders organization stopped insulting their fans with PSLs after they gained their own control of ticket sales from the OFMA.

    I guess the 49ers ticket base (winery owners, Silicon valley, what else?) doesn’t care about being ripped off, but I could definitely see Mark Davis and Amy Trask refusing to sell PSLs.

    This stadium is for silicon valley non sports fans.

    This is a big plus for the NFL. A rich history of winning in one of America’s great cities that loves sports will continue.

    I am a Bengals fan, so not much of a Niners fan, but I have to say…..that was an impressive win! Congrats Niners.

    Maybe if Chokeland would stop swapping coaches they could have enough success to warrant a new stadium. I hear the blueprints for Leavenworth are available.

    You all have it Wrong.

    It’s SBL’s aka STADIUM BUILDERS LICENSE.

    I should know, I have 4 seats!

    Niners beat Green Bay and it was no surprise to me. Just a better team than the 13-3 team last year.

    GO NINERS!!!

    Can someone explain to me what a PSL is and what purpose of it is? Is it ownership of a specific seat and therefore no one else can use it?

    Nothing to do with the Packers game.

    Why try and make a connection where there is none?
