With Lions game, Ravens get 2nd sold-out season

December 19, 1998|By Jon Morgan

The Ravens have sold the last tickets to the Dec. 27 home game against the Detroit Lions, marking the second season in the team's three years in Baltimore that every home game has been a sellout.

The last of the Lions tickets were sold on Wednesday, said Ravens executive vice president David Modell. Every other game this season also was sold out, as was every game in 1996, the team's first year in town.

"I think this reflects the terrific interest in this area with professional football and the Ravens and this community's terrific interest in the new stadium," said Modell.

He said the sellouts were all the more remarkable given the team's losing record. Sales of "permanent seat licenses," the one-time fees required of most season ticket holders, have also continued, with about 4,000 still available of the 62,000 offered for sale.
