MANHATTAN— The Jets have been forced to slash season tickets for seats in the new Meadowlands stadium.
The price of so-called “personal seat licenses” — which team requires to get seats lower bowl of the stadium — have reportedly been cut from $5,000 to $2,500. The team also cut prices in four sections of lower sideline seats, from $15,000 to $10,000, and in 10 sections of the endzone, from $4,000 to $2,500.
The original high prices had caused much controversy among Jets fans who worried they'd be priced out.
“Jets officials feel this aggressive rollback in the cost of these selected PSLs will assure the sellout of the Home of the Jets and will secure owner Woody Johnson's recent pledge to fans that there will be no blackouts of Jets home games,” the team said on their website.
The seats can be paid using a 5 or 15-year payment plan, the Jets website said.
