The Yankees have posted this warning on their web site about those fans who have had 41-game ticket plans at the old stadium and will have them again at the new one. Basically, it says that if you don’t want to accept the seat assignment you are given at the new stadium, you can technically request a new one but there is no guarantee you’ll get one because there is so much demand. In other words, take the assigned seats.
If you decline your assignment, the assigned seat location set forth on the enclosed invoice will be immediately forfeited and released into available inventory. There can be no assurance that such assigned seat location or any other requested location and/or Plan will be available to you at a later date. Thus, we strongly suggest that Licensees accept their initial seat assignment because the demand for 41-Game Plans will definitely exceed the supply.
Of course, if you’re willing to upgrade to some of those REALLY expensive seats, the team will be happy to accommodate your desire to switch.
As an alternative to your 2009 Yankee Stadium seat assignment, we are now offering a limited number of new 41-Game Plan seat locations in select infield seating areas of Yankee Stadium.
This new opportunity is available only in the following designated seat locations: (a) Field Level sections 115 through 125; and (b) two Yankees Premium seating areas – the Legends Suite and the Main Level Outdoor Suite.
The 41-Game Plan in the two Yankees Premium seating areas also includes access to private Clubs and Lounges, preferred parking, private entrances, premium food and beverage service and other premium amenities.
Those tickets, according to the release, go for a mere $350 per game (or about 14 grand for the season).
Anyone on here affected by this news? I’d be curious to hear about how the seating relocation program has been working …
