The Falcons are hoping to get a new stadium to replace the Georgia Dome. If they do, fans could end up having to pay for the ability to sit in the seats to which they buy tickets.
According to 11Alive News in Atlanta, an NBC affiliate, the latest term sheet regarding a potential stadium deal includes Personal Seat Licenses.
As 11Alive points out, 15 teams currently use PSLs in one form or another. In some respects, it’s an investment, since the PSLs can eventually be sold on the open market for more — or less — than the purchaser initially paid.
The 49ers will be using PSLs at their new stadium in Santa Clara.
In the end, it all comes down to supply and demand. If people will pay for the PSLs at the price that the powers-that-be apply, it’s a good move. If they don’t or won’t, it’s a bad move.
