Real time seat availability maps... No big surprises on available seats... Obviously, not all seat inventory is showing...

Notables:

1. No front row seats available on any level.
2. 106 is first non-club section on 100 level to sell out.
3. A couple interesting good seats still available:
a. Section 132 - Row 4
b. Section 114 - Row 11 - Aisle - Falcons sideline

 

 

As others have said, wish this option was available sooner.  But as with any sales, it is easier to sell at first, if you don't show your hand.

Seriously though its a shame they couldn't get MBS ready for the MLS opener, would have been a wonderful opportunity to check out the stadium, find a location you like etc.

Any word on Atlanta United ticket sales?

Some new and old info here...

Mercedes-Benz Stadium will be one of the most spectacular sports and entertainment venues in the world with a fan experience that will be unparalleled.

That dedication to the fan and the fan experience at Atlanta Falcons games was an important factor when it came to the decision to use seat licenses. The Falcons are one of 18 NFL teams that sell or have sold a form of a seat license for funding either new stadium construction or a renovation of an existing stadium.

The seat license concept was born out of the college sports donation program, however, seat licenses offer more benefits and flexibility than the college donation program. They give fans ownership and flexibility to transfer their seats outside of their immediate family – to date, Falcons fans have not had the ability to do that. Owners will also mbs_icons-onbackground_v4-12-1200x900be able to re-sell their ownership rights to their seats on the open market instead of simply not renewing their season tickets and having no ability to recoup any money they had spent on tickets over the years. In addition, seat license holders will get priority access to purchasing tickets to a number of Mercedes-Benz Stadium’s biggest sports and entertainment events ahead of the general public.

The right to ownership of seats in the stadium has also signified the beginning of a new legacy and tradition for families. Fans have the opportunity to make memories now and to continue passing down the family legacy of Atlanta Falcons fandom to future generations.

Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer – Business Operations Michael Drake explains, “As (seat license holders) grow older and as their kids grow older and come back from college and set up roots here in Atlanta and begin to grow their own family the parents will often pass down the rights to their seats to their children so that they can carry on the family legacy and tradition.”

“We want families to make Sundays at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in downtown Atlanta their new tradition for the next 30+ years.”

Seat ownership and all the benefits that come with a seat license cost less than you may think at Mercedes-Benz Stadium because the pricing structure for seat licenses has been designed with flexibility in mind. For example, pricing starts at just $50 down. On top of that, there are 12,674 seats priced at $75 down or less, which represents nearly a quarter of the sellable non-club seating, and the average cost for these seats is only $68 per game. In addition, the ticket price has been locked for fans through the first three seasons. Historically, new stadiums such as those in Dallas and New York have not increased ticket prices once the committed time period ends.

“There are many different pricing options, there are flexible payment plans where fans can pay for their PSLs over 10 years with a very minimal amount down and there are premium amenities on all levels of the stadium,” Senior Director, Ticket Sales at Legends Global Sales for Mercedes-Benz Stadium Dustin Vicari said. “Families of any size, and any individual, can afford seating in our building.”

With the launch of the online sales platform this month there are now more ways to evaluate seating options and purchase seats. These include over the phone, online and at the construction site during a tour. Staff members are available Monday-Saturday. Construction site tours must be booked directly by phone at 678-686-4400, Option 1 and are usually available on Thursday afternoons. Fans also now have the option to select and purchase their seat licenses online through our Virtual Seating Map found here.

Every section and seat will have access to the stadium’s fan-first food and beverage pricing along with several other premium amenities, such as fast, reliable WiFi and over 2,000 video displays so fans can stay connected to the action on the field no matter where they are in the stadium. The stadium’s wider concourses, retractable roof and Window to the City – a floor-to-ceiling window wrapped in ETFE fabric on the northeastern façade – will help create a more open feel throughout the venue. With more legroom in each row and 95 percent of the seats measuring two inches wider than those currently in the Georgia Dome, the in-seat experience has been elevated to an entirely new level.

Now that the Atlanta Falcons are just one season away from playing in their new home at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, fan appetite is high with over 60 sections currently sold out and many more with fewer than 30 seats remaining.  As fans continue to learn more about the low costs, incredible energy and one-of-kind experience they will have at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, seating availability will go quickly and time is running out to be there when those doors open in 2017.

PSL sales update... Slightly less than 3,000 sold in past 4 months...

http://www.myajc.com/…/about-33000-falcons-psls-sold…/nsmZy/

Full text:

The Falcons have sold about 33,000 personal seat licenses for the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, generating about $181 million, according to the latest available figures obtained this week from the Georgia World Congress Center Authority.

That leaves tens of thousands of seats for the Falcons to attempt to sell before the start of next season, slated to be their first in the $1.5 billion downtown stadium.

Falcons officials hope the team’s winning, high-scoring start on the field this season will stir sales.

“When your team is winning, everyone is excited. That’s just obvious,” said Michael Drake, the organization’s senior vice president and chief revenue officer. “And there is some emotion tied up in a purchase.

“If there is a belief with the fan base that the team is going north rather than south, they’ll listen. And if you’re winning, they’ll take the call a little quicker. Certainly things get a little easier if you’re winning.”

The figures obtained from the GWCCA through an open-records request this week show the Falcons had sold 32,702 seat licenses for a total of $180.98 million as of the start of last month. That included 4,630 club seats for $103.13 million and 28,072 non-club seats for $77.85 million.

The GWCCA doesn’t yet have September sales figures because there is a 30-day lag before the Falcons are required to submit signed contracts to the state agency.

Drake said there has been an increase in sales in recent weeks as the Falcons have opened their season with a 3-1 record, including three consecutive victories over the Raiders, Saints and Panthers. The Falcons wouldn’t release an updated sales figure.

“We’ve moved to over 55 percent sell-through of the building,” Drake said.

That percentage is of “sellable” seats, he said, meaning those for which PSLs are being sold. An undisclosed number of seats in the 71,000-seat stadium, such as those in suites and for sponsors, do not carry PSLs, which are one-time fees required for the right to buy Falcons season tickets for the next 30 years.

The seat-license prices range from $500 to $5,500 for non-club seats and from $10,000 to $45,000 for club seats. Down payments of 10 percent ($50 to $4,500) are required. Revenue from the seat licenses go toward the stadium’s construction cost.

Since sales began in January 2015, some long-time season-ticket holders have said the high-end prices, especially to retain prime seat locations along the sidelines in the lower bowl, caused them to drop their tickets rather than move to less expensive locations in the new stadium.

Among the first seats to sell out were the upper-level end-zone seats carrying license fees of $500. The Falcons then reduced PSL prices on several thousand seats in the upper corners from $1,250 and $1,500 to $500 and $750. That brought increased interest, Drake said.

The Falcons said this week that 60 seating sections, out of about 135 in the building, are sold out. The sold-out sections are mostly in the middle and upper bowls, although the $45,000 seat licenses in the lower bowl at the 50-yard line also are sold out.

While most sales have been made at the stadium preview center or by phone, the Falcons recently launched an on-line tool through which fans can select and purchase seats electronically.

Generally, Drake said, it’s not a good idea to “sell around wins and losses” because those can be unpredictable from week to week and season to season. Instead, he said, the emphasis is on the amenities of the new stadium, the “legacy” aspect of passing down seats through generations, the downtown location and the range of pricing and financing options.

Still, he said, “it helps — doesn’t hurt — when we win.”

Since last November they have been selling at a rate of 6 to 700 per month.  That rate may have well picked up with the recent success of the team but it is still hard to see them selling the remaining PSLs in the roughly 11 months they have before the start of next season, short of discounting or other promotions.

At that pace.... I agree

 

Winning, winning the division, making the playoffs would help immensely...

 

Obviously a collapse like last year, would guarantee that they won't...

 

Mr. Drake swears that they won't discount.....  But I bet they do something that adds value..... The lower level PSL's are expensive and harder to move...
