Russell Wilson raves about rookie DK Metcalf, also assesses other Seahawks receivers at minicamp
The Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce will sell tickets to four Seattle Seahawks matches on Friday, July 26, during the 16th annual Tri-Cities Day celebration.
The annual ticket sale honors Benton County voters who supported Referendum 48.
The 1997 statewide ballot measure authorized a $425 million financing plan to build what is now CenturyLink Field to serve as home to the Seahawks.
The package included $300 million in public funds and was famously derided as welfare for the rich by opponents.
But Benton County voters supported the Seahawks on a vote of 11,117 to 9,789. Benton was the only Eastern Washington county that did.
The results prompted the Paul Allen-led Seahawks to establish Tri-Cities Day as a way to thank local boosters.
Franklin County opposed the Seahawks on a 5,062 to 4,502 vote.
Any tickets that aren’t sold Friday will be sold online the following Monday.
Tickets are offered for:
- Aug. 29 against the Oakland Raiders (preseason)
- Sept. 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals (regular season home opener)
- Oct. 20 against the Baltimore Ravens
- Dec. 2 against the Minnesota Vikings
Tickets are $65 for the Raiders, $180 for the Bengals and $175 for the Ravens and Vikings. Prices include taxes and fees.
Purchase tickets in person starting at 8 a.m. Friday at the chamber office at 7130 W. Grandridge Blvd., Kennewick. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The chamber will accept phone orders starting at 9 a.m. at 509-736-0510.
Any remaining tickets will be available at tricityregionalchamber.com starting Monday, July 29.
