Re: Its Official! Las Vegas Raiders by 2020

Anyone sign up for the season ticket list and put down the refundable $100 deposit? I want to do this and feel like season tickets would be profitable to resell for the first year at least but am concerned about all this talk about having to buy a PSL which could make it unprofitable.

Any thoughts? How much has a PSL historically cost for other NFL teams? Is it a one off payment?

Keep in mind that if you sell your tickets and the buyers cause an incident you will lose your remaining season tickets without refund, and can never buy them again. Given how drunk and rowdy fans get at these games it may not be worth it, but that's up to you to gauge, this is just an FYI. The only way you'd be off the hook is if you used the team's ticket exchange site, but then of course you can't sell for more than face.

It's probably worth the risk. The Raiduhs are used to rowdy fans, Black Hole and all that jazz. Vegas visitors are probably going to be a lot better behaved than their usual home fans.

I can't remember if all season ticket holders were require to buy a PSL or not, I just remember a lot of complaining about them. Did they release prices yet? The prices for the Santa Clara stadium are ridiculous.

Remember, you will probably have to buy at least two seats to make them resellable, probably three.

By placing a Deposit, you may have an opportunity to purchase a Personal Seat License (“PSL”) and Raiders Season Tickets at the Las Vegas Stadium where Raiders plan to play home football games starting with the 2020 NFL Season (“Stadium”). Placing a Deposit ensures that you will receive information regarding the sale of PSLs and Raiders Season Tickets for the Stadium as it becomes available. Details regarding the process for the sale of PSLs and Raiders Season Tickets for the Stadium are being finalized, and placing a Deposit does not guarantee that you will have an opportunity to purchase a PSL or Raiders Season Tickets at the Stadium.

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT PLACING DEPOSIT DOES NOT PLACE YOU ON A NUMBERED WAITLIST OR PROVIDE SPECIFIC PRIORITY IN TERMS OF WHEN OR IF YOU WILL BE CONTACTED REGARDING A PSL OR RAIDERS SEASON TICKET PURCHASE. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT PLACING A DEPOSIT DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE SEATS IN ANY LOCATION. (all caps in original)

You agree that you must purchase a PSL for the Stadium as a prerequisite to purchasing Raiders season tickets. A PSL is a one-time fee that will secure your right to purchase tickets to Raiders games and other events at the new Stadium. PSLs will be sold by or on behalf of the Las Vegas Stadium Authority

I thought the $100 deposit was for the PSL?

Cost of the PSL depends on the value of the seat. Prices might start at $500 (that's the cheapest one at the new Falcons stadium), good seats might be in the $1500-$5000k range?

FWIW, you can resell the PSL if you don't want to buy season tickets anymore. If you don't buy tickets and don't sell the license, the team gets it back for free.

I buy saints tickets all the time off the official nfl ticket exchange and its always more than face value. Sometimes I'll see the best seats listed on there for 10-20x face value. So I'm not sure what the legality of it is or why it's allowed.
