‘It’s impressive’: York9 FC sells out premium touchline seats ahead of inaugural CPL season
A month into its inaugural season ticket drive, York9 FC has already sold out one of the best seats at York Lions Stadium.
A local business launch event Wednesday night in York Region resulted in supporters locking up the remaining selection of York9’s “race car” seats, which will be placed in close proximity to team benches along the touchline.
“I’m not surprised we sold it out, but to do it in less than 30 days is impressive,” said Ben Zayandehroudi, York9 FC’s VP of Ticket Sales and Fan Services.
“The quality of the seat was a big seller.”
The 96 “electric green” padded seats lining York9’s pitch will offer one of the most unique — and comfortable — viewing experiences in the Canadian Premier League. They were valued from $900 to $1,000 each for the season.
Zayandehroudi says Wednesday’s event, which was attended by more than 800 community members, offered York Region business leaders and fans a unique chance to familiarize themselves with the amenities that will be on offer at York9 FC matches in the CPL’s inaugural season.
“We haven’t had a place for our fans to walk into, so this event was a big opportunity to showcase what we offer,” Zayandehroudi added.
“People enjoyed craft beer, they sat in the seats, they talked to our sales representatives about the stadium and learned about the kind of players this club is going to sign.”
