ATLANTA (AP) – Personal seat license sales for the Atlanta Falcons’ new stadium have surpassed expectations set by the firm handling the process for the team.
That doesn’t mean all fans have been won over by the pitch to pay big money for the right to purchase season tickets.
Ricky Burroughs, who had been a season-ticket holder since 1990, says he turned down the chance to keep his seats when Mercedes-Benz Stadium opens in 2017.
Burroughs said Thursday, “The best seat in the house is at the house, you know?”
Many fans have jumped on board. Michael Drake, vice president of the firm handling the sales for the team, says the first-year PSL results blew projections “out of the water.”
