We who attend the games can see that the Club seats are 50% sold out, the Upper Deck 80% sold out. Do the math on 12,500 Club seats and 27,000 Upper Deck seats, you get.....drum roll please.....12,000 "unsold" seats.
Nothing is different today than it was on opening day last month. The only news here is that unlike past games where StubHub is down to 500 seats by now, it's sitting at 4,000 seats because there are no Houston Texan fans to buy them. If this were, say, the Pittsburgh Steelers, we wouldn't be having this conversation.
nobody is jumping ship on good non-club lowerlevel seats. Jets have sucked for long periods of time before.
Plus if people jump and you stick it out the Jets may work something out. However, one NFL team I forgot who had PSLs they were a flop and they just stopped selling them. Season tickets were sold in those seats when they became available with no PSL and anyone with PSL payments left could just stop paying them. The issue was all the folks who already paid off their PSLs were screwed and got no money back.
Other issue is what if Jets went to variable pricing like Nets or Yankees. Sars front row corner Mezz A seats would be lets say $180 a ticket while last row Mezz A dead in Endzone would be lets say $100 a ticket. That is a risk that could happen but I don't think would happen.
I heard orginally the Jets considered charging a higher PSL price for rows 1-4 in Lower Level, TC, LGL and LSL and kinda make a new version of the Front Row Club Jets had in old stadium. Demand was weak so they killed it. Big issue with PSLs is trust. I trust Jets. But in reality according to PSL agreement they could say row one Mezz A should pay an extra $25 bucks a ticket and you have to pay it or default.
