2011 NFL Lockout: Season-ticket Sales Up

If you think the NFL lockout is driving fans away from the sport, I suggest you take a look at the recently released season-ticket data. According to Daniel Kaplan of the Sports Business Journal, NFL season ticket sales for 2011 are ahead of its 2010 pace.

The report says the increase in sales is due in part from a push by teams to get season-ticker holders to pay for their tickets sooner, realizing that a lockout was coming.

The news comes as many teams are deciding whether to lay-off or furlough employees during the lockout. Several teams have already started trimming payroll by cutting staff and salaries.
