GIANTS ANNOUNCE 2006 TICKET PRICES

 

The Giants announced today that they have increased ticket prices, effective for the 2006 season. Giants season ticket holders are being informed of the increase shortly in a letter that will accompany their statement for their 2006 tickets.

 

Prices have been raised $5.00. The team’s new ticket prices are $75 for the upper and lower tiers and $85 for mezzanine seating. Last season the Giants gross average ticket price of $73.57 ranked 11th out of the 32 teams in the National Football League.

 

The Giants 2006 schedule will be released in early April when the National Football League announces the entire league schedule.

 

After opening the season on Sunday night, Sept. 10 against Indianapolis in Giants Stadium, the Giants will play host to the NFC East - Dallas, Philadelphia and Washington - as well as Chicago, New Orleans, Tampa Bay and Houston.

 

The Giants will travel to Baltimore to open the preseason the weekend of Aug. 10-12 (WNBC-TV). The Giants then play host to Kansas City in a nationally-televised (FOX) game on Thursday, Aug. 17. The Giants are the visitors against the Jets in Week 3 and wrap up the preseason by playing host to New England (WNBC-TV).

Governor Corzine Gives Green Light

 

EAST RUTHERFORD -- The New York Giants and the New York Jets, the Tisch, Mara and Johnson families, New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine and the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority today jointly announced that the Governor has completed his review of the Memorandum of Understanding related to the development of a new football stadium for the Giants and Jets at the Meadowlands Sports Complex. Although the principal terms of the original Memorandum of Understanding remain unchanged, the parties have agreed to adjustments that relieve the State of predevelopment costs and grant the New Meadowlands Stadium developer certain additional opportunities to reap the economic benefits of its development.

 

"Governor Codey made a tremendous effort to keep the Giants and Jets in New Jersey and today's announcement confirms the partnership that has been fostered between New Jersey and the teams," said Governor Corzine. "The stadium that will be built will be a world-class facility that will set a new standard for football venues. I am also excited that the Jets will practice in Florham Park and I welcome their decision.”

 

“We are very grateful to the Governor for recognizing the importance of this project,” said Woody Johnson, Chairman and CEO New York Jets. “We are looking forward to moving ahead and beginning work on the new stadium as planned.”

 

Giants Chief Executive Officer John Mara said, “Today’s announcement is great news for the fans of both teams, and we thank Governor Corzine, former Governor Codey, the NJSEA and our partners, the Jets and the Johnson family, for the tremendous effort put forth to bring us to this stage.”

 

Steve Tisch, Chairman of the New York Giants said, “We are very excited that the Jets and the Giants will have the opportunity to make history when this stadium opens as one of the premier facilities in the NFL.”

 

Former N.J. Governor Richard Codey, an ardent supporter of the stadium project, said, “I am pleased that the parties have reached what I believe to be a fair deal, and I think all parties agree that it is time to put shovels in the ground and make this project, which will be so beneficial for the State of New Jersey, a reality.”

 

NJSEA Chairman, Carl Goldberg remarked, “With these negotiations behind us, we can now focus on working with the Johnson, Mara and Tisch families to finalize the land plan so that construction can begin on this exciting project at the Meadowlands.”

 

FLORHAM PARK SELECTED BY JETS FOR PRACTICE FACILITY

In addition, the Jets today announced they have decided on a location for their new headquarters and practice facility, a site in Florham Park that was formerly the headquarters of Exxon.

 

The practice facility will house all football operations and most corporate functions including a 110,000 sq. ft. building housing 100 employees, three outdoor football fields and one indoor football field. Relocating the facility from Long Island will generate a number of local jobs and more than $10 million in new annual tax revenue, the Jets said. The move is part of the Jets agreement to build the joint Meadowlands stadium with the Giants. The Giants will build their own new training facility on a site within the Meadowlands Sports Complex.
