Boomer & Carton: Jets Release Unsold Tickets

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — The New York Jets are selling individual tickets online for less than 2,000 remaining upper-bowl seats in their new $1.6 billion New Meadowlands Stadium, according to WFAN’s Boomer Esiason & Craig Carton.

The tickets are to go on sale to season-ticket holders at 10 a.m. Tuesday exclusively through, and will be available to the general public starting at 4 p.m. Ticket prices range from $105-$135.

Boomer & Carton said sources close to the situation informed them separately via telephone.

“The New York Jets will announce at some point today… two thousand seats not yet sold, available to be purchased by everybody,” announced Craig Carton.

Matt Higgins, the Jets’ executive vice president of business operations, says many of the seats became available when fans upgraded from the upper-bowl seats — a non-PSL area — to other sections that recently went on sale at a discounted rate.

Higgins adds that 96 percent of the stadium’s seats are sold, and insists it will be sold out by the season opener Sept. 13.

Unlike the Giants’ similar announcement in mid-August, the Jets tickets for sale are not attached to PSLs. None of the approximately 10,000 seats in the upper bowl require a personal seat license for Jets home games.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Ì can’t get through on the phone so I don’t know how else to ask this. Why is it that Carton cuts Boomer off every time he talks about the Rangers? We need to hear more Rangers talk!

    I was watching a show called “Crimson Tide” a few weeks ago. It was about Alabama football and its spring training, they we inteviewing Nick Sabin in his office. My son noticed a book on Sabin’s desk that looked like it ha a Jet logo on it. We went back to see and it was a binder with the Jets and a Jets logo written on the side, It looked like playbook. My son and i are big Jets Fans and would not want to start any type of unneccary controversary, but if that was some sort of a playbook is it customary for a pro team to share with a college team?
