Welcome Private Seat Licenses!

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!


PSLs Suck! said...

What a joke, especially when you consider that there's absolutely nothing wrong with Giants Stadium. It's 32 years old and still a great place to watch a game. You don't tear down schools & hospitals after 32 years, do you? This new stadium is being built for the millionaire fan who can afford his luxury club seating. The rest of us real fans will be watching on free TV.

Memo to Woody Johnson as well as the Maras and the Tischs...

Not everybody was born (like you) with a silver spoon in their mouths.

These PSL prices are outrageous and bordering on criminal. If the fans buy those PSL's shouldnt they reap profits everytime a non-football events (concert, soccer, etc.) occurs at the stadium and their seats are used? After all those seats belong to the people who bought the PSLs.

The Johnsons, Maras and Tischs are wealthy beyond means and their forcing fans to buy PSLs is repugnant.

I live in New Jersey and here is a copy of the email which I sent to my State Senator and State Assemblyman. If you live in New Jersey and are outraged by these ridiculous PSLs, I urge you to contact your elected officials and urge them to support Assemblyman Chiappone's prposed legislation!


The purpose of this e-mail is to express my support of the bill proposed by Assemblyman Anthony Chiappone (D-Bayonne) banning “personal seat licenses” from being levied in New Jersey. As you may know, the New York Giants have proposed a personal seat license program in which season ticket holders will be forced to pay an exorbitant cost in order for the right to purchase season tickets. The New York Jets have also announced that a similar plan is forthcoming. This charge ranges from $1,000.00 per seat to $20,000.00 per seat and is in addition to the price of the actual tickets. The team has claimed that the new stadium construction is 100% over budget and as a result they are implementing these fees.

At the very least, the teams should provide an accounting of these cost overruns they are citing, as they defy belief. Current long term ticketholders whose seats are in certain areas of the stadium will be faced with an $80,000.00 bill to stay where they are. The possibility also exists that many people who have tickets located in the $1,000.00 zone will lose their seats to people looking for a less expensive option.

Please visit the following webpage for details of Assemblyman Chiappone's proposed legislation:
