Thread: Charlotte FC / MLS Thread (Inaugural match 3/5 7:30pm)

  1. #181
    I have a few industry contacts in MLS who told me that Charlotte FC got lucky with COVID because Tepper and the Panthers staff he used were not remotely prepared to start this year, and it seems like they still have no idea what they're doing. Starting off with shitty attendance and zero local interest because nobody goes to matches is a big problem.

Half filled NFL stadiums (probably going to 1/8 filled with these prices) are lame soccer venues, even when at 100% soccer capacity.

    the opposite of the Atlanta model -- bad move, imo

    Meh, they will still sell out. Dick move to price out half the population, but they will still sell out.

    I really don't think these seats for 45.00 a game is that terrible, FWIW

    The real answer is cutting lower level prices then opening up the upper deck. No idea why they didnt go that route

    You keep those prices and average attendance won't break 10K. Plus the atmosphere outside a small supporters section will suck. Then nobody will want to go. You make tickets cheap the first season, create a fun atmosphere, then jack them up.

    PL prices are substantially lower than that, and nobody is buying a PSL.

    Revs tickets from that angle/level are $20/game. $45 would be midfield. And they still have the same issue with attendence because a half empty football stadium in the burbs with no public transportation is an awful atmosphere.

    I'm paying $25/game for season tix at club level for the Fire

    different situation and it's only a one-year promotion for the inaugural season (with fans) of the return to Soldier Field, but I think club tix are $50 retail

    Depending on demand, there could be more seating open that begins to go higher in the stands that may see cheaper prices, but all very speculative right now.
    LOL.

    These prices are ridiculous. Add in the unknowns of a team with no superstar signing thus far, no idea generally of game times and game days, and the back and forth with Panthers/city/stadium, this is a tough price and team to get behind currently.

    Is it me or does a PSL policy for a new franchise in a league that desires growth make zero sense?

    I guess I'm glad that I moved because if I were still in Charlotte, I'd have felt guilty not buying a couple.

    The worst part about the PSL is when Teppy world gets built in 7-8 years and the only thing you'll receive from the club is the opportunity to buy PSLs again at 10x the price.

    truth

    seems so obvious to me that a new team in a monster stadium should pretty much give tickets upper deck tickets away to families

    hook them early, break even on concessions, build some real excitement around a new team, even if they're bad

    this is MLS, not the NFL

    everyone here will be happy to know the Fire will have a new logo again in 2021 after the debacle of the current logo

    Are we looking at the two best kits currently in the MLS?? Lots of fire. And this match is great.
