Face it, unless you get them from a .net member you'll be paying way more than face value as the 5000 single game tickets that aren't available for season ticket holders will go in under 5 minutes when released. Stubhub and NFLticket exchange went live for "scalped" single games as soon as the schedule came out.
2. If you want the full Seattle experience and have a few $$$ to blow definitely stay at the Edgewater or the Waterfront Marriott
3. Take a round trip on the Bainbridge ferry. If the weathers good you'll be treated to epic views of the City and the surrounding area.
4. Go to Temple Billiards..meet many .net folk...
Thanks for the info, but two questions; if some of the tickets are already being sold via stubhub and such, then why does the Seattle FO wait until mid July for single season tickets through ticketmaster? Wouldn't that be a better way to go?
The tickets on StubHub are "season ticket holders". If you are going to Seattle esepcially for the game, then just make it the game a good experience. I would recommend looking at StubHub so that you can pick the seat you want in a calm manner, ask questions on here about different sections, look at the view from the seat, etc. and just acknowledge you are paying a premium for that.
If you go the TicketMaster route in August, it will be a mad scramble of trying to purchase tickets in a 2 minute window and not having any choice of the matter.
If you are making a big trip out of it, then spend a bit more cash to get the seat you want instead of buying the last row of the stadium and not enjoying it as much.
Depending when you arrive in Seattle, a good experience is the stadium tour. I am not sure if they have changed, but they didn't do it on Saturdays before games. NM - see you are arriving on Saturday.
Try and stay in a hotel in an area that you can walk to and from the game. It will make the experience a lot more enjoyable not having to worry about parking, taxi, car ride, etc.
