    Questions about Season ticket waiting list...

    Well I know there are some people here who have season tickets, But I have a few questions about them.

    I called the ticket office a few days ago for some things, and asked where I was on the list, and she told me about 6000 something ( forgot the actual number) and said that its about a 1-2 year wait.

    So Is that usually accurate? For those of you who got yours recently and called up to see where you were, if they say 1-2 years, does that mean I'll be a season ticket holder in 1-2 years? Or will it probably be more than that?

    Cause 6000 people are ahead of me, and it just sounds like I'm a long ways from being a season ticket holder, so I wasn't sure how quick it goes, or if I'll possibly be a season ticket holder in the 2014 season.

    Also, when you get the season tickets, do they call you and let you pick out any section? or do they have sections for you to choose from? And can you change seats each year if you want, or change how many tickets you want to purchase each year?

    So not sure what all it is about and had some questions. Just getting kind of excited to be getting close to having season tickets I guess.

    Thanks

    In 2010 I got notified via email around late april and that year I was somewhere around 2400. The year before I was 4500 or so. I benefited from mediocre play by the team under shanahan and the first year of McDaniels and, most likely, the economic crash during that time. If you are number 6000 and you don't get it in 2 years you'll get it in 3 definitely.

    Once you are notified via email you can log into your account and pick from the remaining available seats (most likely 5th deck). I sit in 505 and the view of the field is great.

    Thanks for the reply man

    So the 6000 people ahead of me should all go pretty quickly? I will probably call back again next Feb or March or so and see where I'm at. So they notify you by email? They don't call you? And where is the account that I can log in to? Do I have to create one? Or do I have to wait until I'm a season ticket holder to do so?

    And yea man, I've sat in the 500 sections before and they are all great seats. I know some people that call them nosebleeds and terrible seats, but they are probably people who have never sat up there. To me, every seat in the house is great.

    Then what happens though? Can you get 1 season ticket if you want? or 2? And can you change it each year? Like If I want 1 at first, and then change it to 2 another year? How does that all work?

    All I know is that I'm getting stoked, and I wanna move to Denver, and if I get my season tickets, that will probably make me move there even quicker

    I think you can get up to four seats but I only have two so I don't know for sure. Good luck on the wait. I got mine about six years ago. One of the best things to ever happen to me.

    Nice, what section did you get yours in? And have you had the same 2 seats for each of the past 6 years? But yea man, I hate spending money, but I love spending money on Broncos tickets. Kinda funny. I spend money on gas and to get my car repaired a lot, and I always think about all the tickets I could buy with that wasted money.

    I'm a season ticket holder and here's what it says in the 2012 Fan Guide:

    Currently over 32,000 names on the list with a wait of 7-10 yrs.

    Doing the math that's between 3200 - 4500 people a yr. get tickets. At 6000 you are 1-2 yrs away.

    You will get an e-mail when you make it.

    You can't get one seat. Either 2 or 4.

    The wait depends purely on the number of people that don't renew, and the number of people ahead of you on the waiting list that don't buy tickets when their names come up.

    Thanks to a nameless former head coach that rhymes with click-faniel and the worst 20+ game stretch in Broncos history, a LOT of people cancelled, and waits dropped from 12-15 years to 5-6 years. By all reports, this year the renewal rate was very high, and they even sold out the club section very early (the day after Manning signed, I believe).

    There are somewhere around 25,000 season ticket holders and I think they claimed about 98% renewal last year. So, that's only opens up 500 spots on the list. Considering how many people said that when upgrade time came, there were very few seats to choose from, this number probably isn't very far off.

    Again, the other factor, and one I have no way of estimating, is how many people actually buy season tickets when their name comes up. Let's just say that only 50% buy tickets when their name comes up, that would mean that in an offseason like last year, 1,000 names come off the list a year. Contrast that to the to or three years before that, where it appears that 5,000-6,000 names a year were coming off the waiting list.

    If the Broncos go out and win 11+ games and win a game or two in the playoffs, you might find yourself waiting 3-6 years before your name comes up.

    As to your question about seats. I believe you an actually get any number you want (up to 4 seats). I don't think you are restricted to 2 or 4, but I am not 100% sure.

    As to changing. You can add seats in the future. They will let you add a maximum of one seat a year, but they won't guarantee that you can add one every year. So, let's say you add a seat this year and next year you want to add another, based on availability, number of single seats, etc., they may or may not let you the second year.

    Also, it's important to note that it is very unlikely that when you add a seat it will be neither your other seat(s). So, let's say you get 2 seats when your name comes up. Then, the next year, you call and add one seat. They will give you a seat as close to your original as possible. It might be in the next row, or ten rows away, or 5 sections away. Then, each year, during the upgrade time, you will be able to attempt to combine your seats. Upgrades are staged, where the people with the oldest accounts first get a chance to upgrade, then the next oldest group of accounts, and then the next oldest group of accounts, etc.

    Like the waiting list, this is tied to renewals. So, if the renewal rate is very high, there aren't going to be a lot of seats open to allow you combine yours. Bottom line, if you think you want two seats, it is much better to get two right away, then to get one and plan to add a second one the next year. Same with 2 vs. 4. If this offseason was any indication, If the Broncos get back to winning ways, adding seats, combining seats that aren't next to each other, etc., will be VERY tough.

    The bolded part is wrong. According to DenverBroncos.com:

    "Over 90% of Sports Authority Field at Mile High is sold on a season ticket basis"

    http://www.denverbroncos.com/tickets...n-tickets.html

    That's over 68,000 season ticket holders.
