    This should be broadcast live on tv.

  2. Seahawks22360 says:

    Any word on the ticket info for the rally in the stadium?

  3. Dukeshire says:

    Only that they are going to charge for the rally and that it begins at 2.

  4. PHXHawk says:

    Parade will be live on NFLN.

  5. So there will be a rally at the Clink after the parade gets there?

    Speeches and showing the trophy, etc?

    If so it seems like there is choice to be made between being on the parade route and seeing them go by, or just going to the Clink and waiting for them to show up.

  6. Seahawks22360 says:

    rbuzby- that’s my understanding. I’m just curious if it’s first come first serve for the rally portion.

  7. ” first come first serve”

    Good point. There might be 200,000 people who want to be there. Or more.

  8. I cant find anything official about anything happening at the Clink, other than the parade ending there.

  9. Seahawks22360 says:

    It’s safe to say I will be leaving my hotel room rather early:)

  10. Seahawks22360 says:

    I heard the tickets are being made available to season ticket holders right now.

  11. They announced that the Hawks will be riding in the “Ducks” during the parade. Those amphibious vehicles that take people on tours around Seattle. They have open sides, but also have roofs. Open top vehicles would be much better, but whatever!

  12. rramstad says:

    Earlier today season ticket holders were emailed notification that they could go into their account manager online and claim tickets for the rally at CenturyLink. I did so and the event start time is 1:30 PM. The email also clearly stated that STH needed to claim the tickets right away as they intended to scoop up all unclaimed rally tickets for redistribution.

    I have no idea how or where they will distribute the other tickets. I’d like to think they’d go to Blue Pride and/or other people on the waiting lists next, but who knows?

  13. I would like to take G’Children to Clink..no season ticket..how do we get in ?

    SEAHAWK SUPER BOWL WELCOME HOME EVENT – $250 (redmond)
    Have 4 tickets (will only sell as package) to the hottest event in town first to call and have $1000 cash gets them

    954-881-4190
    Location: redmond

    Can you believe they are already scalping the rally tickets on Craigslist for over $100…really for a FREE ticket??? That’s just wrong… May itching powder and wild fire ants fill their undies for doing such a thing to the fans like us that can’t afford to be a season ticket holder!!!!!!!!!!!!! If I was lucky enough to be able to get a ticket or two I’d share with someone who couldn’t afford it…I WOULD NEVER CHARGE someone…heck I’ve even gave away concert tickets to friends for free that weren’t cheap because I couldn’t go…it’s just morally wrong!!!!

  15. janluvs2fish says:

    Very upsetting to hear that unless you are a season ticket holder you cannot attend the rally inside the stadium…for those of us who are single parents and on limited income who are HUGE fans this is just a crushing blow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! to say the least!!!!!!! I realize we have the parade, but it would have been nice to know that even the limited income fans could have had the chance to at least be part of the festivities inside…well, again, snubbed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. janluvs2fish says:

    AND YET IT’S OK FOR THOSE WHO ARE TICKET HOLDERS TO SCALP THEM!!!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. There is only room for 65-70,000 at the Clink. Of course season ticket holders get first dibs, and that means there isn’t much room for the rest of the 500,000 who want to go!

    This is going to be huge! I will be somewhere on 4th avenue trying to catch a glimpse of the team. I was hoping to be at the clink, but seriously folks, there are almost 10 times as many people who want to be there as there are seats in the stadium.

    I’m just happy that the Seattle Seahawks are the Champions of the National Football League!

    Tomorrow may be as much about being with fans as it is about seeing the team. People are flying in from other cities to attend the parade. It may be impossible to see anything. I’m going anyway!

    GO HAWKS

    Selling your FREE rally tickets?!?!?! That’s bad Karma. I’m a season ticket holder who can’t attend the event today. I gave my free tickets to a friend who is a great fan and has never had the opportunity to attend a game.
