The specially priced seats will also be available on a payment plan. With a $10.15 down payment, fans will pay only $9 bi-weekly for their seat.

“We are trying to eliminate all obstacles for attending while growing our fan base at the same time. We hope this price point will help achieve that,” Presson said.
