Atlanta United announced via emails to Founding Members the season ticket prices and information for next season. Season Ticket prices are almost the same price — only $18 more for the four cheapest ticket packages, which averages an extra $1 per game.
The more important note, especially for current season ticket holders, is that season tickets WILL AUTO RENEW on September 15 for your current ticket(s). I doubt there are many out there who have felt that the season ticket they bought hasn’t been worth the money, But if you’re strapped for cash and can’t afford it, you must contact the club (via firstname.lastname@example.org) by August 24. If you visit the tickets section of the Atlanta United web site, you can add your name to a wait list for season tickets. Atlanta United still requires a $50 non-refundable fee to add your name to the wait list, but you will not need to renew your spot on the list or pay the fee more than once.
The interesting/controversial part of this, however, is that the team’s first game in the new Mercedes Benz Stadium isn’t until after the August 24 deadline, and only five days before season tickets will be automatically renewed. What if the halo board is too bright? What if the food is too cheap? What if the ball is too bouncy on the turf??? I kid, but if some fans are considering upgrading their seats, they might want to see what the atmosphere is like in different sections in the new stadium.
Overall, the ticket news is very positive, mainly down to the reasonable pricing that allows fans with variable amounts of disposable income the opportunity to come watch the best soccer team in the South. For context, the season ticket prices for Minnesota United FC, Atlanta’s expansion sibling franchise, are about the same amount. Atlanta United seems to be committed to keeping the prices very accommodating for fans, which will only drive up demand for the product.
