The Jets will officially open their 2010 training camp on Monday, August 2, just as the club begins its annual season ticket mailing.
"This year we're sending the tickets out three-day FedEx, no signature required," said Rob Sullivan, the team's vice president of consumer sales & service. "So one of the changes this summer is the season ticket holders will receive an email confirmation when the package got sent, so they can see where the tickets are en route. FedEx guarantees delivery within the first three days, but most fans will receive them within the first 48 hours. Fans who have purchased their seats will be able to track it and find out the exact day it's going to be delivered."
And what will be delivered won't be like any other season ticket package. The Jets, who will host the Giants on Aug. 16 in the first ever football game played at the New Meadowlands Stadium, have made a comprehensive box that will provide season ticket holders with an overview of the stadium and everything they're set to experience there.
"It's exciting and it's comprehensive," Sullivan said. "Our passionate fans are going to be charged up and ready for that first game."
A gameday guide will be a must read for Green & White season ticket holders because there are so many features to the new stadium such as the 350,000 square foot plaza that will open three hours prior to kickoff, newly constructed inner and outer looping roads created for quicker routes to the parking lots, a New Jersey transit line that can race you from Penn Station (by way of Secaucus) to your seat in less than 20 minutes, parking lots that will open five hours prior to kickoff, turf fields for skill challenges and a Jets Shop Flagship Store powered by Reebok.
But one might also catch an appetite reading the Zagat Guide to the New Meadowlands Stadium which includes food reviews from the players and coaches.
"It doesn't feel like it's from a fast-food place," said QB Mark Sanchez after eating Nonna Fusco's Meatballs. "It feels more like it's from a family-style homemade kind of place."
With Delaware North taking over concessions at the Jets' new home, there are approximately 25-30 new items that will be found on the stadium menus.
"This is good," Revis said. "A lot of stadiums don't have this type of food. Good homemade food right down generation to generation. That's how you want food to taste."
In just a couple of weeks, Jets football kicks off at home. If you've purchased your tickets, they'll be out the door next week. In the unlikely event that season ticket holders don't receive their email confirmation by the August 9, call 1-800-469-JETS.
