Let’s hope this isn’t a dollar sign of things to come here in Atlanta.
In San Francisco, where the NFL 49ers will in a few years move from their longtime Candlestick Park home into a swank new billion dollar football palace in nearby Santa Clara, the price to see their playoff-bound squad is soaring. And soaring.
To $80,000. (Note: this is not a typo).
That will be the top cost, according to a report from NBC News, for what we’ve come to lovingly call the “personal seat license.” Which is what you have to buy in order to have the right to purchase season tickets to actually watch the games in person.
Premium game tickets, by the way, can run a few K apiece, on top of that PSL.
This is noteworthy here in the ATL as Arthur Blank and his Falcons head on down the road to a pigskin pleasure palace of their own.
No cost estimate yet on seats at the Georgia Dome replacement but, one might say, the San Fran deal sets the bar. A very high bar.
