The San Francisco 49ers season ticket holders have a problem. The face value of tickets for the 49ers has been jacked up so much in recent years and the team has made no improvements on the field resulting in long time season ticket holders left holding onto tickets they were able to resell in the past.
The preseason games are always tough to sell and the 49ers Raiders game had ticket prices as low as a quarter of the face value and for the Houston game this weekend the 49er ticket prices are even lower. Many longtime 49er season ticket holders now believe the owners are intentionally trying to move them out to make room for the investors in the new stadium in Santa Clara.
Right now the only games that are selling for the 49ers are the games against the Dallas Cowboys on Sept 18, the New York Giants on Nov 13 and the Pittsburgh Steelers on Dec 19. In fact the 49ers have been sending out emails for discount 49ers tickets but the fans can still save much more by buying their San Francisco 49ers tickets directly from a ticket broker.
This must be why the 49ers placed restrictions on fans at the beginning of the season that makes it tough to sell the electronic version of the tickets anywhere but the official NFL site, which charges twice as much or more.
It appears the York’s have been the worst possible owners for the 49er fans as they try to get the same money for football games on the west coast that the teams in the frozen northeast coast get for their games. The only problem is that out west we have many other options in the winter and football is not the only thing.
