The Jets held their eighth New York Jets Fan Advisory Board at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center this week as 30 season ticket holders had the opportunity to discuss tickets, the gameday experience, Jets Rewards, sponsorships and content with a number of team executives.
"We had a terrific time. The Jets had a very well organized, first class, professional presentation. It was a memorable experience and has only increased my long time loyalty to the Jets organization," said Alan Raylesberg, a season ticket holder since 1977.
Fans shared their gameday experiences with Jets staff members and met CEO Christopher Johnson, GM Mike Maccagnan, HC Todd Bowles and 2018 rookies.
After checking in, fans had a chance to mingle with CEO Christopher Johnson, general manager Mike Maccagnan and head coach Todd Bowles. Then following a dinner, Team President Neil Glat discussed the organization's plans for the 2018 season, some of the club's offseason engagement events and the relaunch of the team's website.
Following Glat's opening remarks, Fred Mangione, Brian Mulligan, Seth Rabinowitz, Jenn Linn and Eric Gelfand engaged in a Q&A with fans, covering the areas of ticketing, gameday experience, Jets Rewards, sponsorships and content respectively. The night didn't end before those in attendance toured the team's facility.
"It's important we spend time with our fans," said Mangione, "hearing about their experiences so we can keep learning and getting better. These type of events are what make us one of the most accessible teams in sports."
It was a busy week for the organization, which also held its annual Taste of the Jets Thursday night at the Metropolitan Pavilion as all net proceeds benefited the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
