The New York Jets had expressed concern regarding their ability to sell out the new stadium in 2010, due to the inability to sell all Personal Seat Licenses.
Recently, the team slashed the prices on the PSLs, which has helped to sell more of them. Per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the team is confident that all will be sold.
“We’re 100 percent certain that we’re going to sell out by opening day,”
Executive Vice President of Business Operations Matt Higgins told Mehta. “There’s no chance of a blackout. . . .
“Every hour the phone just keeps ringing with fans interested in
purchasing tickets,” Higgins added. “There will be no need to adjust
those prices any further. We expect a full sellout.”
The fact that it’s even a question for such a hot team in the nation’s largest market is troubling, not only for the Jets but also for the NFL as a whole. Though it can be blamed on the economy, it could be that more and more fans prefer to watch football at home.
