FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a PSL?
A PSL, or Personal Seat License, is used mainly by NFL franchises (as well as other sports entities) to help fund new stadium construction. A PSL is similar to a one-time membership fee that allows the owner of the PSL the right to purchase season tickets for a specific seat within the stadium at face value, generally for as long as the team plays at the stadium. Failure of the PSL owner to purchase the season tickets, generally results in forfeiture of the PSL back to the team with no compensation. A PSL can range in price from a few hundred dollars per seat up to tens of thousands per seat, depending on the team and location within the stadium. A PSL can generally be resold on the secondary market once the owner no longer wishes to utilize the PSL benefits. In addition to season tickets rights, a PSL also provides the owner the right to purchase post-season tickets for their seat as well. Often times, PSL owners will also be offered the opportunity to purchase tickets for other events held at the stadium before the general public.
