Default Season ticket holders... how long did you wait?

I was just reading another thread about the waiting list for tickets and it made me wonder how long other people have waited for their tickets.

I was on the list for 18 years before I got my seats. When I did the math I realized I had waited exactly half my life for tickets.

How long did you wait (or have been waiting)?

My season tickets have been handed down through generations so I did not have to wait at all. But my family purchased season tickets before the 1970's and there was not a waiting time. The demand was not as high as it is these days.

We've been on the list since 1995. I think after the most recent expansion they are on 1994. However, since the introduction of the PSL the list has moved much slower. I got sick of waiting and purchased PSLs from a guy from Ohio who couldn't justify driving in for the games.

Gumby21, not to discourage you, but don't waste your time with the waiting list. If you really want season tickets, you're going to need to get a PSL from EBay, Craigslist, etc. In the past if you didn't want your tickets anymore you would just give up your spot as a season ticket holder and the Steelers would offer it to someone else. However, with the PSLs you can sell your right to season tickets to the highest bidder. There's no way someone is going to give them back to the Steelers and get no money when they could sell them for several thousand dollars.

Gumby21,
PSL stands for Personal Seat License. When Heinz Field was built they charged all existing (and any new) season ticket holders a one-time PSL fee to raise funds to build the stadium. They varied in price depending where the seats were located but they were around $1K to $2K per seat. Once purchased they provide you with the right to purchase season tickets every year. You are actually required to purchase tickets every year otherwise you forfeit all rights. PSL rules vary by team, but in the case of the Steelers they allow you to transfer (sell) your PSL to someone else. The Steelers main site has info buried somewhere in there. I can't post a link but it's under the tickets section under seattransferpolicy

I spent a couple of years watching for the right seats. Generally speaking you should be prepared to pay anywhere between $5K and $20K per seat for the PSL. That will be the price to the existing PSL holder, you'll pay the Steelers for tix every year, of course. The Steelers only except transfers during a limited window, so you'll want to use some sort of escrow while you wait for them to approve it. I'll tell you, it was nerve wracking waiting for the transfer to go through.

There is a website (I hope I don't get in trouble for posting it) called SeasonTicketRights.com that lists PSLs for sale. They also have a downloadable excel spreadsheet summarizing PSL transfers from last year to give you a sense of price. You can also check EBay, Craigslist, etc.

Hope this helps.
