Oakland Football Marketing Association Prorates Price of Personal Seat Licenses to 60 Percent of Original Cost.

News/Sports Editors

OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 28, 2000

The Oakland Football Marketing Association is pleased to announce that the price of Personal Seat Licenses (PSLs) has been prorated to 60 percent of their original cost.

The Oakland Football Marketing Association (OFMA) also said that current holders of PSLs -- which guarantee fans the right to buy the same seats through 2005 -- may upgrade or purchase additional PSLs at the new prorated price.

"We are very pleased to offer this opportunity to our loyal fans who have requested this change," said OFMA Director Michael Re. "This plan achieves our two most important goals: it represents fairness and value to current PSL holders and makes the PSL product more attractive to all Raider fans. This is a great opportunity for current PSL holders to upgrade and or purchase additional PSLs and share the Oakland Raiders experience with more family members, friends or business associates."

In addition, Re said, "for fans who have been considering buying a PSL, now is a great time to join the Oakland Raider family. We have an exciting team and an attractive PSL product."

Re added, "as a courtesy to our current PSL holders, we have reserved an exclusive period through May 10 to upgrade their seating locations before we assign seat locations to new PSL purchasers."

Under the plan, Re said, PSL holders can apply the money they've already paid for their PSL to upgrade to a better seating location in a higher PSL category.

The Oakland Raiders 2000 home schedule features games against perennial division rivals -- the Denver Broncos, San Diego Chargers, Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs whom the Raiders beat at Arrowhead Stadium in a season-ending game ESPN termed one of the "most exciting" in the NFL last year. Non-divisional play will be highlighted by a Sunday night nationally televised game against longtime rival New York Jets, the return of the Cleveland Browns to Oakland for the first time since 1979 as well as the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons.

With the backing of the best "12th man" in football and the addition of new talent selected during this month's NFL draft, Oakland Raiders look forward to a successful campaign at Network Associates Coliseum.

Current PSL holders or fans who want more information about the new prorated PSL purchase plan, season ticket packages or Luxury Suites may contact the OFMA at 510/615-18888 or visit its website at www.ofma.com.

The Oakland Football Marketing Association's mission is to make purchasing Oakland Raiders tickets as convenient as possible and to provide superior customer service on a timely basis.
