Regarding season tickets....
Wed Dec 26, 2012 10:34 pm
  • Hey guys. As you'll see, I'm new here and this is my first post but I look forward to becoming more active here and talking ball.

    I'll just be completely up front right now....I'm an Eagles fan (ouch). I was born and raised in PA and came out here to the Pacific NW back in 2003 via the Military. Got out in 2009 and decided to make my life here as I love it here. Finishing up a degree at UW and plan on buying a house and claiming this as my new permanent home.

    With all that being said, I try to goto 2-3 Seahawks games a year and I've grown to support these guys over the years unless it involves the Eagles (don't remind me of the TNF game last year, please).

    Being that I live 15 minutes from the stadium and love being in the CLF atmosphere that you guys have here, I want to pick up a pair of season tickets for my fiancee and myself. I put the deposit down today for two seats but was hoping for a bit of assistance from a current season ticket holder here.

    How does this whole process work from here on out after I've put a deposit down? Anybody have any ideas? Just not sure what to fully expect going forward.

    Anyways, that's it. I'm sure a few might run me off because I'm not a primary Seahawks fan but I do support them cause this is now my home and that's fine, I understand it but I'm not here to cause trouble or anything so hopefully its cool I hang around here once in a while.

    Had that issue over on the Cardinals message board when I joined to talk the game with them before the NFC Championship a few years ago.

  • I know a few of out of town fans that have season tickets here and wear Hawks gear until their team comes to town.

    Season ticket renewal begins in march for existing ticket holders.
    Once they get everyone squared away, they begin adding new season ticket holders. (usually around May or June)

    Get to know the seating chart and where you might like to sit for the price.
    Its a lot easier when they don't have to hold your hand too much.
    Find sections you like and say the magic words. (Do you have any aisle seats available?)
    They probably won't but it's worth trying.

    Set your expectations low for the first year. Just getting in the house is the hard part.
    Then work on getting better seats each year until you find your favorite spot.

    That's kinda what I was figuring...that it was going to be a tough going for the first few years just to get in the building and be able to hold season tickets and I'm completely content with that.

    I was hoping to be able to score some charter seat tickets but the likelihood of that I imagine, isn't very good. I'll really take whatever I can get but this is the first opportunity that I've had to buy season tickets and just am not sure what to expect so wanted to ask so I appreciate the help.

    But like you said, the Eagles and really...all Philly sports teams are what I breathe and have since I was a kid. I've been to the last four Eagle games here in Seattle and have been respectful of those around me and for the most part, was respected in return. I'm not one of "those" fans.

    I root for the Seahawks every week they aren't playing the Eagles hence my interest in becoming apart of the family, even if I am a bastard child :D

    Thanks again for the help. Looking forward to the call and seeing whats available.

  • I just got season tickets for the first time last season up in 328 X...lots of drunken morons but awesome view of the field. I'm in 316 on an aisle in row L (woohoo botched upgrade process) this year and it's awesome minus the resellers selling to opposing fans in our area.

    After the season ticket folks upgrade/move, then the newbies get to pick. It's based on when you dropped your $100/ticket deposit. You get a really unstable flash application to select your seats. You'll get a window of about 36 hours to pick...if you're more than a half hour late then you'll probably miss out on peak selection.

    Other things to keep in mind:
    -Make friends with your ticket rep...they can hook you up or make you so very sad :(
    -Have multiple backup browsers for picking tickets...site is unreliable. Good news for me was that the server took a beating and kicked off most of the competition come upgrade time :)

    Most importantly:
    Don't sell unusable tickets to away fans...

  • I haven't had the displeasure of using whatever automated seat selection process they have now, but it sounds like a pain.

    I'll reiterate what SilkMonkey said and really, really get to know your Account Representative. They will be able to shift and move you around
    to a more desirable location.

    I have a couple of fans around me with dual loyalties (Seahawks/Cowboys), and they usually announce it by wearing their 'other' team's hat
    with Seahawks stuff.

  • Hey, I'll take a season ticket holder who roots for the Hawks against all teams but one over ticket brokers owning them and selling them to away fans on Stubhub. Bring it on.

    This was such an awesome post, I really appreciate it.

    When you got your tickets last year, is that all they had available? It's like I said, I was hoping to get charter seats but if thats not in the cards, I'll literally take anywhere and work my way up the ticket ladder.

    I put my deposit down yesterday so I figured that was a decent time for the newbies such as myself to secure something seeing how I think they take deposits up until what, April or so...right?

    I'll just be happy to get anything to be honest. I've been to 7 NFL stadiums in my lifetime and there is nothing like a game at Century Link Field/Qwest Field, whatever. The atmosphere and crowd is just something else, kudos to you guys.

    Once again....thanks a ton for all the help.

    edit: When you have that 36 hour window or whatever, do they just e-mail you or call? How are you notified to logon and purchase your seats pending things are still available.

    Charter seats are owned by the charter seat holders unless repo'd by the Seahawks. You buy charter seats from a charter seat holder wanting to sell and pay the Seahawks a transfer fee. Someone here should be able to give you a tip on buying charter seats on the secondary market because I'm sure many here have.

    I want to secure season tickets and earn my way into that crowd. I wear my Eagles gear when they are here but every other game that I've been to here in Seattle, I have Seahawks gear on and I'm in full throat with the rest of you guys.

    Words can't explain how excited I am to finally have the opportunity to join all the 12s for a full season (hopefully, pending I have some tickets left when they get ahold of me)

    I'll be ready.

    I'm really not sure why I didn't think of that. So they're kinda like SBLs then? They've been under control by the holders since the stadium was built, basically? Maybe I'm thinking of the wrong thing.

    Either way, I'm cool with anything. Row Z. Doesn't matter.

    Yes charter seats are like personal seat licenses at other stadiums. There is / was a cost associated with the license. The cost varies by location but most are in the $2K-2.5K per seat range. The charter seat holder may have received a discount of up to 20% depending on length of season ticket status (how long they were a season ticket holder) and how they paid for it (cash up front had a discount). Having a charter license allows the owner to sell the seat or will it to their heirs. Otherwise regular seats are not transferable.

    Makes total sense now. Eagles had a SBL program when they built The Linc so it all comes back to me now.

    Gotcha. Well I'll just cross my fingers and hope something decent is available come my chance to buy.

    I've sat just about everywhere at CLF from Club Seats (which are awesome) to upper deck corners to upper deck 50 yard line seats.

    I think the only area I've never been is the Hawks Nest.

  • Awesome choice bro! I just put down my deposit a couple weeks ago as well. My cousin called a csr and she said they'll call in May about picking seats and then the full balance is due in June. I've spent almost $1000 this year already on single game tix (Dal, GB, Jets-free, Noners and Rams) so I had to put up for season tix.

    I hear ya. I had my 16 year old brother in town last week from Idaho and he's never been to a pro or college game for ANY sport so I was really wanting to take him to the game last Sunday.

    Prices were so out of control, I couldn't swing it. So I decided to get in on the Season Ticket train and just do it that way since I love going to the games and I'm only 15 minutes away. Makes sense to me!

    I talked to a CSR on the hawks website this morning and she told me that when I get called to pick my seats in May that the balance was due immediately which I found kind of odd. You just get a random call and then a balance of $1,000+ is due right then?

    It's fine, I'll have the money set aside waiting for that call but found it kind of strange so hopefully what you were told is more accurate in the fact you'll have a few weeks/month to get it situated and paid for.

    Yeah that's pretty odd. I also heard from another season ticket holder you can set up an account on team site to make monthly payments from now til whenever its due in full. That sounds like the best way to go, that way you're chopping that bill down little by little.

  • I remember when I bought mine (only lived in Seattle area one year). It was the inagural season of the new stadium. Was watching pre-season at home. If I remember correctly Dilfer was the new qb - we were up 10-0 against Cincinatti (player and team may be wrong I was drinking...) and were looking good. Offense was clicking and there was this superbowl winning qb. At the bottom of the screen scrolled - buy season tickets call this number..........

    what the heck I called bought a season ticket. $400 sat right where the turn ends over the player entrance. Great seats couldn't believe it $400 for a season

    Hung up the phone.....Dilfer broke his leg or something on the very next play kid you not. Seahawks didn't score again. Could have scalped every game for below face value

    Oh well still fun and was worth it sitting next to the same people every game and I got the inagural stadium pin at home :)

    Oh yeah. I was told that from the CSR I spoke to as well but thats not until after your first season apparently.

    When you first secure your tickets for the first season, its due in full right then or within the month (as you were told) but after that first season you can set it up in monthly payments or something going forward which will be nice.

    Curious as to why we were both told something different lol.

  • The good thing about having the season tickets is that you get to start knowing the folks around you. Over time, you can get close to those regulars. That way your Eagles alliance can be shared with them so they aren't shocked when you show up once in a blue moon with Eagles gear on.

    I haven't used my season tickets in a few years but every time I do come, there are some diehards who continue to acknowledge me. They know my heart is in the right place. Though I am sure my son and his cousins are more laid back than I was at the games. I truly continue to keep the tickets because of those folks. Weird.

  • The 328 X was the best, I got in only right before preseason. Super late.

    This year I did the payment plan, two batches of ~$500 each. They email you your time slot and you use your ticket master account login to modify/change, etc.

    I can't afford lower bowl and actually really like the view up top anyway. You're welcome to head up top with us, I'm gonna try to stay in that section just move down a few rows.

    Will be tough but who knows...

  • Sooooo I was told that most sections become available every off-season. Given the team success I don't think I buy it. However I was told if a section I didn't like was all that was available they would refund my money. It felt like hot air up my skirt at the time. Was it?

  • Yeah, my concern was the price point so it wasn't as big an issue.

    Lots of people move down and around so I'd expect some openings.

  • Couple of tidbits. There's an Eagles fan I see every game in section 109, no one gives him too much grief, he wears Eagles stuff to Seahawks games, he's obviously thrilled to cheer on the Seahawks, but the Eagles are #1 in his heart, and he lives here, so it's all good.

    If you want charter seats you will have to acquire PSL. These are occasionally available from the Seahawks, but they can only be transferred once per calendar year, cost between $2k and $3k initially, and the secondary market can be all over the place. It's well worth it in that you are getting super ultra primo seats and the $$ per game isn't all that much... very similar to the $$ per game for upper level seats that do not have PSL, actually. Basically it's a lump sum payment that allows you to get great seats for less money. I would suspect after the last few games that PSL will be hard to come by this off season...

    I don't want to be "that" guy. I wouldn't wear my Eagles gear unless they were here in town. If I'm buying season tickets then I want to be joining in with those around me and rooting for the Hawks, ya know?

    I completely mistook the Charters for basically PSLs which is what they did in a lot of the newer stadiums, I won't be able to swing that right now. I'm budgeting for lower levels and if by some miracle they have some, I think that is what I'll try to get.

    If not and I have to settle for uppers then I'll be completely content with that and be able to throw some money back into my wallet that I planned on using here. I just want to be able to become a regular in that madhouse and watch this young team continue to bloom, its exciting and I just want to be apart of it.

    Except for one game in 2014 when the Eagles come to town. I'm scared for that game just thinking about it now but who knows, maybe they can get it turned around next season and come back here in 2014 and I dunno, compete a little bit? We'll see.

    Oh I dunno about that man....lol. I've been a diehard Philly fan for about 25 years now. But I've pulled and paid very close attention to the Seahawks for the last 7-8 or so. So they have a special place in my heart since this is home but I don't think I'll ever turn my back on my Eagles, despite them being garbage now and probably for the foreseeable future.
