The NFL's Atlanta Falcons will begin selling one-time personal-seat licenses (PSL) next week to finance their under-construction new stadium.
Prices were set for the most expensive club seats on Thursday. The one-time seat-license fee ranges from $10,000 to $45,000 for all-inclusive premium seats. At the new Vikings' stadium, team owners are selling stadium-builder licenses at prices from $500 to $9,500.
At both stadiums, the license buyers must then purchase season tickets to attend games. The Falcons' PSLs come with a three-year price lock on season tickets for 2017, 2018 and 2019.
“We expect the entire club seat sales process to take approximately five months, after which we will begin the PSL and seat sales process for the remainder of the building," said Michael Drake, vice president of sales and service for Legends Global Sales, which oversees sales for the new Atlanta stadium. "Our plans call for a wide range of prices to ensure affordable access for all fans.”
Vikings' owners Zygi and Mark Wilf aim to raise $125 million of their cost to build the $1.1 billion NFL stadium in Minneapolis.
Vikings' spokesman Jeff Anderson notes that 25 percent of the seats in the new Minnesota Vikings' stadium don't require purchase of a seat license, including the corporate suites.
The new Vikings stadium will seat 64,000 people and is scheduled to open in July 2016.
