This season, the new stadium opens for the Atlanta Falcons, and earlier this year the team announced that the stadium will feature the cheapest prices for concessions in the NFL.
Everybody applauded the move and thought the Falcons were wonderful for offering $2 hot dogs ... until they learned how much the Falcons are charging for tickets to the games.
The team will not be selling single-game tickets this season. Instead, fans will be required to buy season tickets. But that’s not all. Fans will also be required to buy personal seat licenses, which is money paid up front for just the right to buy the tickets.
These personal seat licenses range in price from $500 to $45,000 per seat.
Amazingly, they’ve nearly sold each and every one of the 61,000 available season tickets. When they do sell out, all the money raised by the personal seat licenses will put a cool $250 million into the pockets of owner Arthur Blank. (Atlanta Journal Constitution)
