Still No Sellout; Fulstone Says, `Please Call'

Article excerpt

No, it's still not a sellout for the St. Louis NFL Partnership.

Robert Wm. Fulstone, the group's executive sales director, said club seats remain in the $1,200- and $1,600-a-year sections.

Club seats are available in leases of three, five, 10 and 15 years at both levels. A deposit of $400 and a signed lease reserves a seat in the $1,200 section. A deposit of $600 and a signed lease reserves a seat in the $1,600 section.

Luxury boxes remain available in the $55,000 and $62,500 a year price range in the domed stadium under construction downtown. In addition, the Partnership is looking for someone to share a $47,500 a year box with another person.

Fulstone said the two "jumbo" boxes also remain - one priced at $110,000 a year, seating 28, and the other priced at $95,000 a year, seating 20. It is possible those boxes could be split into smaller boxes, however, if there are interested purchasers, Fulstone said.

Counter to its policy of most of the summer, the Partnership no longer is disclosing sales totals.

"I don't even want to get into numbers," Fulstone said Thursday. "We have several club seats left in the $1,200 and $1,600 sections. Please call."

The Partnership sales office at 1 Mercantile Center downtown will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. today and from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Seats and boxes can be purchased with a credit card. The Partnership still is offering messenger service to pick up contracts and deposits.

The numbers to call are 421-0440, 291-1995 or 1-800-4FOOTBALL.

The premium-seating campaign was supposed to end Sept. 3, but the National Football League would like St. Louis to keep selling.

On Sept. 3, the Partnership announced that it had sold or had commitments for all 6,252 club seats and for 86 luxury boxes. But when an NFL auditor came to town Sept. 15, he found that commitments on 760 of those club seats and three of those luxury boxes apparently had fallen through.

The Partnership subsequently pointed out that 250 of those club seats had been reserved for game-day promotions and emergency use, including the possibility that the Partnership might oversell. At one time, the Partnership did have more commitments than available club seats. …
