Monday’s Daily Briefing: Suites are selling at FAU Stadium
There could be some FAU supporters who find something nice in their stocking this Christmas.
How about a key to one of the new plush and luxurious suites and loge boxes at the new FAU football stadium?
FAU Athletic Director Craig Angelos told FAUOwlAccess.com that three of the suites and three of the loge boxes at the new stadium have already been sold.
“We have some people who have committed, made deposit and will be first in the queue,” Angelos said.
That's pretty good considering the stadium is still in the early stages of construction (photos
By the way, the suites go for around $100,000 and the loge boxes start at around $12,500 so these are some high-end commitments FAU has landed.
For FAU, it’s a good early sign that the market is indeed interested in buying suites for the stadium – and there are more parties who may be coming on board shortly, Angelos said.
“We have others that have said they have verbally committed and others who sound like they are interested to go with those who have already signed the paperwork ,” Angelos said.
Angelos said a sales staff for the suites is being assembled to push the high-end seating. But it looks like FAU is off to a good start already. Let’s hope it continues.
“The players are starting to be put in the right position and we’re starting to ramp up the sales,” Angelos said. "It’s coming together and we will probably start ratcheting up at the beginning of the year.”
