New Seats, New Pricing Coming To the Linc

The second phase of the Eagles $125 million revitalization project at Lincoln Financial Field is underway. Along with installing new HD video boards and enhancing the overall audio/video experience, they will be adding 1,600 seats to bring the total capacity to a shade over 69,000.

The addition of more seats will allow the Eagles to take a bite out of their season ticket waiting list, which president Don Smolenski says is currently around 40,000.

Along with the new seating configuration comes an adjustment to the pricing. Approximately 52 percent of tickets will increase in price, ranging from an extra $10-$25 per ticket. These are for the more desirable seats, mostly in the lower bowl. Some 43 percent will stay the same in cost and five percent will go down. The average ticket price will still be the lowest in the NFC East, per Smolenski.

“Over the years we have received a number of requests from our season ticket members to purchase seat licenses, relocate their seats, or purchase additional tickets,” said  Smolenski. “By adding new seats to our stadium, there are opportunities to fulfill some of these requests. Our ticket office will be managing this process over the next few months and we will be fair and flexible throughout the process.”

The new seats will be added to the Northeast  and Southwest corners, as well as in the lower bowl in sections 107, 108, 131 and 132.

Approximately 350 seats have been ripped out from the Northeast corner as part of the reconfiguration. Those occupants will have to find new homes in the Linc. The Eagles are also using this time to try and cater to season ticket holders who have asked to relocate. Put it all together, and it’s a giant puzzle that members of the organization will spend months trying to complete. The expectation is that the seats will be in place, and the puzzle solved, by late July.

    As long as we can break Seattle’s noise record.

    • jerseyfresh

      Won’t happen..stadiums to open

      • peteike

        I see the truth gets a down vote

        • matthasher

          or we can yell louder. boom.

          • peteike

            I like the way you think. Vuvuzelas anyone? remember those, the worst

          • Johnny Domino

            Had vuvuzelas once, they have a cream for that now.

      • Joseph_S

        “TOO” open!

    • nestazhe265

      My Uncle Harrison recently got Infiniti Q50
      Sedan from only workin part time on a home computer… go to this website

  • Token

    Put turf in. Our field blows consistently.

    • considering this is one of the last steps of their 2yr plan, where almost everything else got upgraded, it seems the grass is here to stay

      • peteike

        some places use that turf/grass combo, not sure if we do but that seems to work well if I recall. Holds up better.

        • Token

          you are probably thinking of field turf. Which is whats used nowadays. Great stuff.

    • Johnny Domino

      Can’t get those big ticket soccer matches with turf, even Field Turf.

  • NickS1

    How much does this help in raising the noise level of the stadium? It seems like only the NE corner is getting additional upper level to help keep some noise in the stadium.

  • ohitsdom

    I’m interested to see if this helps the wind situation for field goals. It seemed the one open corner design created some weird swirling winds, Akers talked about it a lot when the team first moved in.

  • Jarrod

    Does that mean there are 40,000 people waiting to get season tickets? How long is that converted to years?

    • Anthony Fryckberg

      I was on the waiting list since it’s inception in 2002. I just got my call last year and to my knowledge (and my stalking of the ticket office), my wait list number was never worse than 1200. I’d think if you signed up today, the Linc would be demolished before you were called for non-SBL seats.

      • Beavis

        Me too. Got my seats last year after ebing on The Linc list since inception. I had choice to defer until this year, but didn’t take the chance. Glad I got in when I did. Now only if I could upgrade!

        • Anthony Fryckberg

          Section 225, row 27. I’m high up but the armrest between my seats is literally the 50 yard line–incredible seats with absolutely insane fans. Couldn’t be happier–except if I were sitting in those seats for the end of a Super Bowl parade.

    • i was on it for a long time, a few years back they called me to let me know im up and its my turn to buy but i couldnt afford it at the time so it was back to the end of the list.. lol.. im sure that happens more often then not..

  • peteike

    I like the way they structured the price raise, seems logical. Raise it for the higher priced seats assuming fans there can already afford to take that hit yet lower it a tad for the others and keep same in the middle of the road.

  • Denise Rambo

    The lowest ticket price is still too expensive for me to take my kid to a game.

    • Richard Colton

      Try stub hub before one of the preseason games. 2 home dates you can probably grab for $20 each, sometimes less.

  • Cory Weatherwalks

    So the way this looks.They are going to be getting rid of all the standing room only areas.

    • NickS1

      Looks like it. That’s crap.

    • BB

      Pretty blatant. “Why let the bums from upstairs stand closer to the action when we can put actual seats there and charge $90+?” Please use the extra few grand to get a quality free safety :)

  • Rick H

    Lurie and his crew need to really focus on making the Linc more intimidating! They can do this by using sound enclosures and other methods… It can be done! All still by abiding by league rules.
    I had my tickets on the 45 yard line on opposing side in club box but the price was getting outrageous so I got rid of them. The seat license cost me $5200 each for 2 seats. How much do you think I got for them? ZERO!!!
    Anyway we need to get this place somewhere close to the Vet. It was a huge advantage for the Eagles back then. The Eagles won games against far superior talent at the Vet because it effected the other teams big time. Yes the field itself was a factor but those visiting teams were visibly distracted and intimidated.
    Yo Jeff Lurie make this Linc rock!!! This is far more important then the Eagles seem to realize.

    • NickS1

      Agreed. Easy to go 15-1 or 14-2 (whatever SEA did) over two years when the team’s good AND opposing teams can’t communicate.

      • Rick H

        Definitely Nick! I am baffled why the Eagles don’t or haven’t considered this. Hopefully Sheil or Tim can put these comments in front of the powers that be. It is worth a shot.
