Default Just sent a letter in to get on Season Ticket waiting list!

I finally got around to it! Haha...I know I will be waiting for like 10 to 15 years but at least they give you a shot at a couple of games each year. That alone is worth it.

You bet it is. Mine went in last year, so only 9-14 years for me! LMAO!

Sorry to disappoint you guys but I've been on the waiting list since 1993. I would guess that at this point it's probably a 50 year wait, if you're lucky. Those season ticket holders will never let their tickets go. They pass them down to family members, generation to generation. My friend has 8 season tickets that were originally purchased by his now deceased great-grandfather.

I know of two different people that recieve pairs of tickets each within the last couple of years. Average wait time for each was about 12 years. Don't know how they divy them out.

I do know that there was some turnover after heinz Field was bought.

But, no matter, I am out of town and the chance to see one or two games a year is fine by me.

Smile Re: Just sent a letter in to get on Season Ticket waiting list!

That is very true! I have been on the waiting list since '98 andwhen I signed up, I was told I would have tickets in 11 years. I do get tickets every year. The secret to getting them is to get the form in as soon as you get it filled out.

I called the ticket office this year and they told me that they no longer even tell people how long it will be before they get tickets. She also told me that this year they are sending out season tickets to people who signed in the month of Feb '96. She also told me that next year they will be working in march of '96. IF they got through the entire month of Feb '96, this year. Now I have no idea if that if true I only know what she said to me in May of this year. It did not sound too promising but like Hammer as long as I get a few tickets a year, I am happy.

If this woman is correct I would think they would have already doneall the years and months prior to Feb '96. Maybe you should call them and check on your status. :)

I gave my 2 season tix up when Heinz Field was built and I"m still kicking myself in the arse. I still get to a couple of games every season so for now, that's good enough for me.

So, what you're saying is if I am an out-of-towner, I would stand a better chance of getting single game tickets if I put my name on the season ticket waiting list?

Yes, but that goes for anyone...not just "out of towners". I simply mention that as it is easier to get back home for two games then all 8+.
