Season Tickets
 
Hey all, My name just came up on the season ticket waiting list, and I purchased some seats. I'm in section 503. How are the seats, and the view?

lol, I know where the seats are :) But I was curious if anybody has sit in that section, and if so how is the view?

Beantown Bronco 05-25-2012 12:12 PM

Considering there are probably about 20 rows in that section, that info could make a big difference as well.

Smiling Assassin27 05-25-2012 12:15 PM

Honestly, my seats are in 506 and they're HIGH. But thankfully, you rarely have the problem of saying 'down in front!' since the slope is pretty steep. 503's not bad at all and you'll no doubt have chances to move down or closer to the 50yd line in time.

adabronco02 05-25-2012 12:20 PM

Yeah they are pretty high I'm in section 503 row 23. I'm excited, and suprise that my seats became available so quickly. I was expecting a 10 year wait and only had to wait 6.

I think i've sat in just about every section in the joint. In the fall you'll lose the sun on a hot Sunday, but in the winter you'll be cold in the shade. There isn't a bad seat in the house though. We used to party at the top of 502 and beat on the wall.

You were lucky to get in this year. Through the Orton years, they were burning through the line pretty quick, which is why it didn't take you so long. But I don't think many people got in this year.

Congratulations. ^5

welcome to the club

I am in 505 and couldn't be happier, row 21...the way they build these places anymore it's hard to get a real bad seat and I can at least see the whole field which I love

Well, here is a post from 2010 from one of our original Broncos' fans and I think you can know that this is pretty accurate for how high you are in 503, row 21:

The seats are as good as any in the stadium. The view is a different story.

Seriously though, I was in 503 when I first got my season tickets. Mine were also high up but the view was decent.

adabronco02 05-25-2012 02:25 PM

I saw the 3d thing but, I figured that I'd be a helluva lot higher than what it looked like on the renderings. I figured I was pretty lucky to get them this season.

Chris 05-25-2012 03:15 PM

Tickets for your seats now come with gear

Enjoy! I'm jealous.

I always sat in the 500's when traveling to games in Denver - last time I was in 517 and the view is great. I also like seeing the whole field like that - Once I saw a pre-season game in Milehigh about 20 rows from the field and didn't like it. Too close to see the plays and a bunch of stand up-sit down stuff - I'd rather be up high enough to see everything. I'm guessing the 300's are the best seats in the house (never been in those sections for a game)

If it were up to me, I'd stand all game. It's not nearly so steep in the SS though.

I've sat in the 300's before, back when we had to resort to tix from scalpers. The view was good. The crowd up there more than made up for the view though. :)

We had seats in 502 for years...we would raise some serious hell up there. Decent view, get to see all the plays develop, we were up at the top so we could stand up as well. Getting to the bathroom sucks, need to buy 3-4 beers at a time due the walk down.

I prefer getting to the game late and drinking Cristal now

The McDaniels' experiment opened up a LOT of season tickets over the last couple years, dropping the waiting list down to only five years or so, but at least temporarily that's changed. They claim about 98% renewal this year. If you figure there are about 24,000 season ticket accounts, that means at most about 500 people on the 23,000+ waiting list got tickets this year.

Assuming the team goes back to being an annual competitor, that's probably going to be the norm.

Also, for the first time in several years, all the club seats were sold. They were sold out within 24 hours of the Manning signing, based on what a friend that tried to get a couple was told.

Wow! That ought to help offset the 100 million.

I hope Manning collects every penny of that contract.

Not the best seats, but at least you're out of the sun.

broncosteven 05-26-2012 08:53 PM

I had to turn down my season tickets after a 6 year wait, I couldn't do it physically at this time. I get to go back to the end of the line.

Except in the winter.

I'm on the other side of the stadium, and dealing with the heat and sun is way better IMO. BUT everybody deals with cold, etc differently.

I believe it. Last summer I was able to move down 7 rows in my section. This summer? Nothing.
