The most traditional way NFL teams (besides the Green Bay Packers) sells season tickets is for all eight regular season games and two preseason games.  Our beloved Packers do their season tickets differently. Currently Packers season ticket holders are split into two separate packages. There is a Gold Package and a Green Package.


I propose the new season ticket holders pay a ONE TIME $600 per seat PSL plus ticket ($48,000,000 new money for Packers) and now all of a sudden the waiting has disappeared, everyone gets a game, or just about. That would give the Packers 240,000 season tickets holders (three season ticket packages , Green, Gold and New Package), times the 80,000 seating capacity per game.

I think it should go to the "Gold Package" ticket holders. :-"

actually it is an interesting idea he has. It won't happen. Many of the people on the list won't want "JUST" 1 game. and it will be a very long time before more games are added to the schedule even in the NFL wants them.

isnt the point of being a season ticket holder having tickets all season? its easy to buy tickets for 1 game per year as is.

probably so. Keep in mind the Packers get more revenue in the form of PSL and the people don't have to pay the scalpers rate.

The story was just a way for him to get some discussion.

Said this before, and I'll say it again, it's poor business practice to have as long a waiting list as the Packers have.

Okay, I understand wanting to have a small waiting list, ten thousand or maybe twenty. But what is the list now? 50K, 80K?

That's a ridiculous price for insurance against "lean years". I'd raise ticket prices by $25/year until that backlog was cut by 50 or 75%.

$25 x 70,000 x 8 = $14 million a year. That's enough money to hire one or two starter-quality OL via creative salary-cap-manipulating bonuses.

EVERY YEAR.

A pretty big price to pay just so current ticketholders can scalp half their tickets and pay for next year's tickets.

If I were Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy I'd be quietly lobbying for bigger price increases every year.

I read that and think don't ya know much about supply and demand? lol

A large portion of those on the list were placed there by their parents or grandparents with the understanding it would be decades before they get their name called. To which it gives them ample time to save up money to purchase the tickets when said name comes up.

Removing the waiting list would be like putting a dome on the stadium. It takes away the 'charm'. Hey, I don't wanna wait 364 days for Christmas to get presents, lets shorten that up!!

You have to watch for diminishing returns. Slippery slope and considering how profitable the Packers are (also sold out X amount of years while having one of the most capacity stadiums in the NFL), I think your accusation of poor business practice doesn't need any further words.

And you know this how? I sit in the same seat for 2 games every year. I see conservatively 90% the same people every game.

A quick check on Stubhub shows the most tickets available are 4123 for the Falcon game. Granted it is getting late and many tickets have already been sold but I seriously doubt 10,000 seats were for sell. That would be no where near half of the ticketholders.

Any season ticket holder that scalps his tickets for profit should have those tickets removed. But then again, I believe tax evaders should be deported.

The real answer is to sell less season tickets and let more people throughout the country have a shot at going to football's Mecca.

I have never sold any of the tickets to the games I could not make. I have given them away. Almost always to friends or family but not always.

I don't see how selling tickets for a profit is "bad."

it isn't but to Troy if someone makes a profit it must be wrong and insidious especially if they happened to be blessed to have parents five them something. I wonder if he plans to leave anything to his daughters or give it all away.

But my point with his haranguing about Packer People. There are good and bad everywhere. There are fans who are loud, rude and obnoxious who follow GB just as there are with any sports franchise. There just happens to be more with some like East Coast teams.
