You'd think they'd give the people signed up for 4 the option though if 2 were available.
I've had my season tickets for 17 or 18 years now.

Sat in the the old south stands at Mile High and my current seats are still in the south stands.

I have no idea how my name was called so quickly on the season ticket waiting list.

I think I put my name on the list in February or March and got a call that same summer asking if I wanted tickets for the south stands.

That is where I wanted to sit most of all....so it felt like I hit the lottery, as I figured I would have to wait years to get a call.

Back then the season tickets cost me less than $500 for the entire year....a ticket in the south stands was under $25, if I remember correctly.

I think they doubled in price in 2001, when Invesco was opened.

Tickets in the south stands are now $73.00 each in my section....I think they are $1460.00 for the year. (EDIT: $80.00 each....$1600.00 for the year)

They have more than tripled in price in the last 17 or 18 years....back in the mid 90s, $20 some bucks for a ticket seems like one heck of a deal, especially considering the run the team was getting ready to go on.
