I hope, I'll take any tickets I can get my hands on at this point. I already bought a couple of tickets for the Hawks vs Bucs game.
. I'm just hoping the Hawks ticket office opens up more season tickets spots for the demand.
Ummm, yeah. They can't open up more season ticket spots. The NFL requires that a certain percentage of seats is sold as single game tickets. The NFL also requires that ADA tickets, which do not count against blackouts, are taken care of separately and only sold as season tickets to people who qualify.
Basically without remodeling the stadium, they can't add seats, and they already have the maximum amount of seats available for season tickets.
(Caveat: They did add standing room only seats for some games, but these are not available for season ticket ownership, from what I understand, and these are only added for certain games anticipating high demand, like playoff games.)
(Caveat: There are plans available that were developed at the very start for bringing the stadium up to 72,000 seats, the minimum for a Super Bowl, which would involve filling in the upper South bowl, around the 12th Man flag. There are also rumors of plans that would fill in the area around the Hawks Nest, further increasing capacity, but I have no idea how real that option is. Either one would require some construction, and we'd all hear about it before they broke ground, I'm sure.)
