Well, that escalated quickly.
The Seahawks opened up registration on Thursday morning for fans to buy their tickets to watch one of Seattle’s 12 training camp practices in July and August.
But if you waited more than 45 minutes to try to get a ticket, you were out of luck.
The Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta reported that the Seahawks sold out every single one of their 30,000 training camp spots within 45 minutes of registration opening.
See for yourself:
This really should come as no surprise to Seahawks fans, or for any other football fans for that matter.
Fresh off a Super Bowl title, the 12th Man is stoked to see their team back in action ASAP. And it only cost them the $7 transportation fee to see them this summer.
And, keep this in mind:
Since 2003, Seahawks have 85-consecutive sell outs through Week 17 of the 2012 season, including playoffs. #2012inReview
