SANTA CLARA (KCBS)— Even though ground has yet to be broken, 9,000 club-level seats went on sale Monday for the 49ers new Santa Clara stadium.
The seats went for $325-375 a game, but that probably didn’t make long time season ticket holders happy since they could get priced out. Some of them even expressed their anger.
“I think it’s garbage. It’s going to be just like the Raiders. If you don’t win, you don’t sell out,” said one fan.
KCBS’ Mike Colgan Reports:
The seats are between the 10-yard lines and come with a 20 or 30 thousand dollar seat license.
“That cost can be paid in different ranges, whether it be paid in full, in four-part installments or financed over the course of ten years,” according to Legends Sales and Marketing Vice President Al Guido.
“Obviously you own the seats and you have the ability to transfer them to a friend, a family member, a colleague,” said Guido.
In addition, he mentioned the ability to sell them on the open market and the priority access to other events in the building such as concerts or other football games.
Only the club section which makes up 13 percent of the seats are going on sale now. Reserved seats which have yet to be priced are expected to go on sale in June or July.
