Interesting information on potential PSLs
I was invited to participate in a survey for the Minnesota Vikings regarding a new stadium design. One of the sections dealt with PSLs.
NOTE: It is important to note that the development of a new stadium is still in the early stages of planning, therefore, no final decisions have been made as to the seating concepts that would be included in the final design or their related pricing.
Anyway, here are the basic sections with ticket price and PSL options from the survey:
PSL: $5,000 - $10,000
Tickets: $225-$325 per seat per game
Tickets: $125-$150 per seat per game
Tickets: $2000-$4000 per seat per game
Tickets: $1000-$2000 per seat per game
Tickets: $500-$1500 per seat per game
Also, they are considering financing options for PSLs.
Multiple payment options may be available for Personal Seat Licenses, including full upfront payment, payment in installments over 2 to 3 years interest free, or payment of 25% of the Personal Seat License Fee upfront with the balance payable over 5 to 15 years at a reasonable interest rate.
I like the idea of PSLs. They are a viable way to help pay for the stadium (not too much though, probably around $75 million by my estimate). And they create more of a vested interest for the fans. If you spend money on a PSL, you are less likely to jump ship just because of one bad season. The fact that Minnesota has had a twelve year sellout streak WITHOUT PSLs is amazing.Zeus wrote:

Kindof related, however, I was listening to the guys on ESPN talking about teams sending stuff out that said only "General" seating season ticket holders would get thier tickets payment returned if a lockout happened.
Cats with PSL's wouldn't.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

All general season ticket holders would definitely get their money back. Premium seat holders, which includes club seats and the touchdown club, MAY not - it is up to the individual club (this is because general tickets are currently part of the revenue sharing model, premium seats are not).
Buying a PSL does NOT mean that you have a premium seat.

Obviously I flipped the PSL price and the ticket price on a couple of those...

Edit: Did a quick search........
Commissioner Roger Goodell announced today a league-wide ticket refund policy for any 2011 preseason and regular-season games that are cancelled due to a work stoppage.
The policy would apply to all general admission tickets. Each club would determine its own policies for club seats, suites, and payments for personal seat licenses.
Guess the PSL returns will be something each team does on thier own.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Now where the confusion may have come in is in reference to the PSL itself. If you but a PSL for, say, the new york giants this summer, and there is a lockout in 2011, you would get the price of your ticket back, but not the price of the PSL itself. This is because you still actually OWN the PSL. A PSL is a one time fee that a ticket holder buys, which grants them the right to buy season tickets for specific seats. They are transferable and sellable. You would still own the PSL the following year when the games are on again, and wouldn't have to buy the PSL again.

If this was how the stadium were to look (I know it is just for survery purposed), I would aim for Area B. Prices are in my range still, and I can swing $2k per seat for a PSL. That is about the upper limit for me though.
