ESPN NFLThe San Francisco 49ers announced Tuesday that the team has sold out its season-ticket inventory for its opening season at the new, nearly 70,000-seat Levi’s Stadium.

Personal seat licenses, which give fans the rights to buy tickets in certain seats, cost between $2,000 and $80,000 each. Tickets in the stadium, which opens this fall, cost between $85 and $375 per seat per game. Levi’s Stadium sold out all personal seat licenses, which ranged between $2,000 and $80,000.

The $80,000 PSL seat is at midfield, comes with access to a field club and on the field itself and includes food and liquor.

“I think that price shocked some people, but our research showed that people would rather pay more up front and have a lower annual ticket cost,” 49ers chief operating officer Al Guido said. “We pitch to our season-ticket holders that there’s value in the secondary market, but it’s hard to see value when you have a huge ticket price.”

Although some have said the 49ers’ move to Santa Clara resulted in pricing out the fan, Guido said that roughly 70 percent of fans who had season tickets in Candlestick Park will have them at Levi’s Stadium.

The 49ers will be the first in the league to offer in-seat delivery to every fan at Levi’s Stadium, Guido said. The team will use mobile technology and GPS tracking to locate fans and deliver orders to each seat. Every concession stand also will have an express pickup for those who want to order in advance and don’t want to wait.

Whether you’re a 49er person or not, going to Levi’s Stadium is going to be amazing. They basically have every type of food imaginable AND it can be delivered to you seat. WiFi, minimal luxury boxes and a huge video board this is going to be a great experience.

However, be prepared to pay out the nose for a seat to this game. If for whatever reason the 49ers don’t start as hot, we could see a “new Yankee Stadium” effect where the seats are outrageously expensive and nobody’s there. Highly doubtful as now that the stadium is in the hot bed of their suburban fan base, but it’s worth noting.
