New England Patriots Season Ticket Waiting List

New England Patriots Season TicketsThe New England Patriots Season Ticket Waiting List is one of the deepest waiting lists in the NFL. Since 1994, the Patriots have made the playoffs 12 times, making it to the Super Bowl on five different occasions. With the Patriots consistently contending for the AFC Crown, their fans are some of the most loyal in the NFL. 68,756-seat Gillette Stadium has been soldout every year since 2003. We reported last year that the New England Patriots Season Ticket Waiting List was closing in on 52,000. The Patriots also boast that season ticket renewals are nearly 99%. We estimated a fifty year wait if you signed up for the waiting list last year. I think that estimation is wrong, the wait time is probably closer to 100 years. Bob Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, in an interview last week shared some intriguing news:

From WEEI.com Big Show on March 9, 2010:

We didn’t use PSLs and it’s really because of the great fan base we have here. We’re now privileged to have over 60,000 people on the waiting list. We have to be very careful that we’re continuously meeting the demands of the fans and that were putting a quality product on and it’s something that they feel comfortable coming here and make it a full day of entertainment.
There you have it and from the man himself. The Patriots have 60,000 on the waiting list and a 99% renewal rate for Patriots season tickets. Sign up today and your great-grandchildren will cherish your memory forever.

The cost of the deposit to get on the waiting list is $100 per seat requested, with a minimum of two and a maximum of four seats. So $200-$400 total. This also means that, with 60,000 people on the list, the Patriots are enjoying the interest on a free loan from those on the list of between $12,000,000 and $24,000,000. Just a fun-fact.

and i am on that list!!! i heard that if there is a lock out, season tix holders still have to pay for their seats, or they lose out....hoping for a lockout!

Damn that wouldve been one good reason for the lockout! I just got on the list last year before Kraft said 60000 are on the list. That waiting list probably wouldve taken a nice hit if people had to pay for their seats during a lockout. I wonder how much they would actually have to pay though.

If the Patriots ever tank, people will stop renewing. Once Brady retires they hopefully will suck for a few years so people stop renewing!

i dont know about you guys, but its a bittersweet thing to read this. i'm glad that the organization gets to have the support of millions of people, but it also hurts to know that i have to wait 50-100years for a pair of season tickets...kinda disconcerting

The 50 year wait assumes a 99% renewal rate forever. Prices keep increasing. TVs a continually getting bigger, cheaper and the broadcast quality is increasing. The team will eventually have a down period. You have to figure that will get it down to a conservative 80-85% renewal rate. I think if you signed up today as say #65k a 10 year wait is certainly resonable.

I am fortunate to be in my second season as a season ticket holder. I applied to the list in 1999 when it cost only $25 per ticket to reserve your spot on the waiting list. Good luck!!!

Well, most of the people I know who got on the wait list know it is going to take forever but the deals they give wait list members make it worthwhile. Playoff ticlets, the ticket exchange, ticket packages, etc..
