The Seattle Seahawks sealed an extension for $87 million with Russell Wilson just prior to training camp.
Jesse Tam, it’s football season when 2500 Seahawks fans line up at The Landing for a spot on the lawn at Seahawks Training Camp! The first of 14 Training Camp sessions, and tickets for the event (free, but $7 to get on the bus) sold out very quickly. These lucky 12s get to watch their favorite players from perhaps the closest perspective ever; and to see them as they prepare and practice hard is a treat itself.
The Seattle fans get the red- er, blue- carpet treatment, with food-for-purchase by Metropolitan Grill, and Seahawks faves Blue Thunder, the Sea Gals, and Blitz! It’s the start of another season of football and awaiting for the playoff with hopes to another super bowl opportunity. Pre-season games in August increase businesses to the SODO, International district, Pioneer square restaurants and viewing facilities for the games. Out of town visitors will make the trek across eastern Washington, Canada and Portland…to join the excitement at the stadium with the Seahawks fans.
Tourism and hotels increase revenue for the city and region with food concessions, dining, shopping. Another anticipating year for the 12’s fan with Russell leading the way.
