The Seattle Seahawks are set to play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, on September 9th at Qwest Field, in the 2007 home opener. High demand for NFL home openers results in an increased resale value of tickets. For fans eagerly awaiting the start of a new season, it's generally best to secure tickets early on, as history has shown, prices increase once supply starts to diminish. The growing secondary event ticket market, estimated at around $10-12 billion annually, provides fans with access to sold out games and premium seating all season long.

According to the Seahawks official website, every regular season and playoff game at Qwest Field since the second week of the 2003 season, a total of 35 consecutive games, has been played before a sellout crowd. Qwest Field, home of the Seahawks, contains seating for 67,000 people, the team has about 62,000 season-ticket holders, leaving 5000 single game tickets available for the general public.

Ticket Tips:

No matter where you sit you're guaranteed to feel the action and excitement. Qwest stadium has been dubbed, ‘the home of the false start' as it's currently the loudest stadium in the NFL, thanks to the fans, who are also referred to as ‘the 12th man'.

The best value seats are often in the north end zone,100 level Hawks Nest seating. The only catch is there's no leaning back in your seat as the Hawks Nest is made up of metal benches, which fans often stomp on to create more noise. The forecast in the Hawks Nest almost always calls for the occasional ‘Miller Lite Shower', so if you don't mind a rowdy crowd, this is the section for you.

Most 300 level sections offer best view per dollar spent and are a great way to see a play develop while enjoying a view of the mountains and the ocean. In every section, the lower seat numbers are to your right as you face the field and although the 200 level seats are cushioned and sheltered from the rain, the low level 300's are arguably a better view for less money.

Call or go online the day of the event, depending on ticket supply, the secondary market often has last minute ticket deals and sometimes have very cheap tickets for those willing to be patient. It also helps to sign up for ticket information mailing lists. Newsletters are also a great way to be notified of all upcoming events in your area and often include subscriber only special offers.
