PSLs Got You Down? Screw That Team… Come Racing! One approach to market horse racing ownership to sports fans
Recent Teams to Introduce PSLs: A personal seat license, or PSL, gives the holder the right to buy season tickets for a certain seat in a stadium. The primary reason sporting venues offer PSLs is that the proceeds are used to help pay the debt incurred during the construction of the stadium or arena. Also, many supporters feel that such licenses essentially give fans ownership of the seat. $16,000 - $150,000 Dallas Cowboys $4,000 - $25,000 New York Jets $1,000 - $20,000 New York Giants

Recommendation: Create a campaign for areas where PSLs are being introduced and there is at least one track. Current locations include NY/NJ & Dallas. The campaign should point to a dedicated section of NTRA.com that contains the TOBA ownership seminar, friendly easy to understand information on ownership including testimonials from owners from all levels, links and information on partnerships at all levels, etc. Roll out the campaign in new areas that meet the criteria and time it with the announcement of the PSL prices.
