New York Jets Tickets for Sale
The New York Jets were established in 1959 and were called the Titans of New York and by 1962 then owner, Harry Wismer was nearly bankrupt so the AFL was forced to assume the costs until season’s end. A 5-man syndicate, that was headed up by Sonny Weblin bought the Titans and renamed them the New York Jets. Currently a member of the Eastern AFC and owned by Woody Johnson, team General Manager is Mike Maccagnan and head coach is former Redskins safety Todd Bowels. Home games are played at MetLife Stadium a sports stadium that has a seating capacity of 82,566. The stadium is owned by New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority and is also home field for the New York Giants, members of the East division of the NFC. The Jets have appeared in the playoffs thirteen times, and in the AFC Championship Game four times and are currently one of three NFL teams to win their lone Super Bowl appearance, along with New Orleans, Saints, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Starting the season without their star lineman, Sheldon Richardson the coach decided they are going to be expecting rookie defensive end Leonard Williams to take his place. Williams who is already being compared to the likes of Richard Seymour, because Williams is so young, full of potential, and at 6’5 with a weight of just over 300 lbs, during training his plays and accuracy were spot on. The Jets are discussing picking up a veteran QB because of Geno Smith’s jaw surgery, coaches are thinking they may be happier to have that kind of experience on hand to push the younger players and offer the team some needed stability and leadership right now.
MetLife Stadium was built in a joint effort of privately raised funds by both teams, The New York Jets and the New York Giants. Owned by the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority it is the only NFL stadium shared by two NFL teams. The construction cost is the most for any stadium coming in at $1.6 billion, MetLife Stadium is also the second-largest stadium ever built and second largest in seating capacity, the lower bowl seats 33,346 the mid-bowl seats 21,323 and the upper bowl seats 27,897. A very unique to MetLife Stadium is it is distinguished by an outer lining of aluminum Louvers and by interior lighting that switches colors depending on which team is playing at home – blue for Giants and green for the Jets. MetLife is not only for football it has also been used for soccer, concerts, WWE events, and many other conventions and entertainment events. The lease is set up so the Jets always have a “way out” when they decide to play in their own stadium only if they can find a way to finance it. And as long as the other teams stays through the end of the lease if one decides to leave then there is no breach of contract. The facility right now boasts two impressive locker rooms with attached locker rooms for visiting teams or for Giants or Jets use during training.
