The Giants spilled the beans today, admitting that there will, in fact, be PSL's at the new Meadowlands stadium. Here's an excerpt from the letter that the Giants sent to season ticket holders.
“We are working very hard to develop a program and process for the purchase of PSLs that will provide a broad range of choices to Giants season ticket holders. Here are a few things we can tell you now. Each seat in the new stadium will have a PSL. Over 90 percent of the upper level seats will have a $1,000 PSL. Less than 5,000 seats in the lower level will have a $20,000 PSL, which will be the most expensive PSL at the new stadium. The pricing of the PSLs for the other seats in the new stadium has not been finalized, but we hope and believe that you will be pleased with the options when we send more detailed information on the stadium’s PSL programs.”
There goes the lower class buying tickets. Good bye to much of the middle class as well. It's a raw deal, but the vast majority of recent stadiums have had PSL's, so they were essentially an inevitability. The only way out is if Jets fans fight the installation of PSL's so much that it's not worth it for them. The chance of that is virtually zero, but it's the only option left for fans. Screwed by big business again!
