The Falcons say they have have sold hundreds of new personal seat licenses for Mercedes-Benz Stadium in the days since their loss in the Super Bowl.
The team released these figures early Wednesday:
- 256 seat-license sales completed online from the end of the game Sunday night through the close of business Monday.
- 347 seats sold from the close of business Monday through the close of business Tuesday.
UPDATE: The total number of PSLs sold to date is 46,104, according to the Falcons — up from 32,702 at the start of the season and 41,102 as of Jan. 12.
The PSLs are one-time fees for the right to buy Falcons season tickets in the new stadium over the next 30 years.
The Falcons said they received 560 “unique inbound requests” regarding seat licenses/tickets from the end of their come-from-ahead loss to the Patriots through Monday, “the highest number of inbound requests the day following a game all season.”
The team also said Monday’s online sales were “the highest single-day online sales total recorded since seat sales began” and Tuesday’s sales “one of the three highest sales days since the regular season ended Jan. 1.”
The Falcons said 76 percent of the available seat licenses at Mercedes-Benz Stadium have been sold. The stadium will have 71,000 seats, but about 10,000 are excluded from the PSL inventory, such as those in suites and sponsorship deals or set aside for other business purposes.
“Fan passion for the Falcons has been amazing this season, and from what we’ve seen the last two days, the interest to see them play in a spectacular new stadium continues to be very strong,” Brett Jewkes, senior vice president and chief communications officer of Falcons parent company AMB Group, said in a statement Wednesday. “With a great young team, MVP quarterback, exciting style of play and the building becoming more of a reality every day, we’re seeing Falcons fans wanting to lock in their seats.”
