Seat relocation: Anyone notice the slim pickings?

Recommended Posts

I like my seats but I always take a look on seat relocation day. Today I noticed there weren't many seats left to pick from. I'm talking mostly just single seats left. Do I read that as a big uptick in season ticket sales?

I wouldn’t read too much into it but I would expect this to have been a very high renewal rate. There is probably some additional flexibility going on too with COVID.

 

As a side note my brother filed for a relocation and there are 2 sets of 3 in the entire stadium that will satisfy his request. 😂😂 He wants one of the 2 sets of 3 next to the old press box, in the last row of the clubs in the field house side of the stadium. I was like “good luck with that.”

For me it’s not as much of a relocation as it is a new seat altogether. I’ve pretty much been sitting in this chair twelve hours a day for weeks. I’m guessing by the time the season gets here I’ll need a new one.

Let us just hope the season arrives this year...... and on time. Anything else would be absolutely cruel! .

@Kirby Jackson...they didn’t even ask me if I wanted to re-up. I just got an email that said thanks for your payment. 🤷🏼‍♂️ No response to an email either. I would’ve renewed but at least ask me.

I didn't see anything that impressed me. I used to love our old seats in 331, second row, on the aisle. Great view from up there.

I will pay extra for seats on the aisle at any event.

I’m in 109 about 2/3 of the way up. My relocation window is tomorrow at 2. I have four seats that are only two off the aisle between 109/110. Pretty great seats, I doubt I’ll do any better for a long time. I love being near the aisle. Old seats were also 109 and were lower, but like right in the middle of the section.

Wow, find that hard to believe. I received 3 emails reminding me payment was upcoming, then email saying if on payment plan it was being extended, and the other day relocation email. My guess is if using GMail May have gone to your social or promotions tab.

Important people like you get all the attention, it seems.

Its total BS. There are seats available in my section a few rows lower - I know for certain they are not sold as season tickets - yet they aren't available for me to select. I bitched to my rep, but it doesn't matter...

I did search’s on both emails that I use. I found nothing, put a call into my acct manager, they’re out obviously due to covid. Sent an email, got no response. I figured something went haywire with everything going on.

I did very well with the relocation process this year. I moved from Sec. 313, in the third row to Sec. 111 towards the rear, which gives me some protection from the elements  from the overhanging 200's above my seats, latter in the season. Scored seats 1&2 in my row, which makes for a very easy in/out - particularly for 'Station Breaks'. Sitting around the 40 yard line. However, Ticketmaster sucks, and their lousy interface, makes the relocation process stressful.

Ask your rep politely and see what happens.

I did mine today.  Not much available towards the middle of the field (I’m in 132), but I moved  back one row and over 7-8 seats towards mid-field (and nearer the end of the row.

 

I was curious how the economic ***** storm was going to impact season ticket sales, but I guess the team’s upswing is more than making up for that.....

I'm in 135, approx 34 yard line near the tunnel out to the concourse.  They're good seats but I was hoping to get inside the 40s.  No luck.  There was a pair on the visitor's side available but I decided to stay put (not wanting to sit with a lot of visiting fans).  Have 10 years' seniority.

Seemed like there were a lot of good seats last year to choose from, today not really.  I was in the 12:30 window.  We got lucky last year and got great seats so it would be hard to upgrade anyways.

 

I was hoping to move though - even to similar seats.  The people behind me get wrecked and even bring weed inside in a vape pen regularly ... not how I want to smell when I’m crossing a border 2 hours later.  They also put Howard Stern to shame (who I enjoy with headphones), and the language is a bit much for me to listen to when I bring my kids to the games.  
 

I was tempted to call fan services a couple times, but I didn’t want to be a jerk.
