Owner Woody Johnson has been saying it for months, and today it's official. The New York Jets have sold out all of their non-premium season tickets for the 2010 season at New Meadowlands Stadium.
Team officials have stated all along that they would sell out their new home and that no home games would be blacked out on New York TV.
About 1,500 Club seats, which do not count toward the league's blackout rules, remain to be sold in the Jets' premium sections — Toyota Coaches Club, West Great Hall Club, Lexus Gridiron Club and Touchdown Club — and the team will continue to sell those seats throughout the season.
The Jets open their regular-season schedule Monday night as they'll lock horns with the Baltimore Ravens in their first game at their new home and the first primetime regular-season game at the new venue. They follow that up a week from Sunday with their game against the AFC East rival New England Patriots. It marks the first time since the first season in the franchise's existence in 1960, when they were called the Titans, that the Jets have opened at home for their first two games.
