2010 NFL season is on the clock

The start of the 2010 NFL Draft last night officially means that the 2010 NFL regular season is on the clock.  The NFL just released the 2010 NFL schedules this week.  And it’s less than 4 months until the kickoff of the season, so now is a great time to buy tickets for the 2010 NFL season.  Grab tickets for all of your favorite NFL teams, including the 2009 Superbowl Champion New Orleans Saints.

The big stories that are generating a lot of early demand for 2010 NFL tickets:
1. The new Meadowlands Stadium will open in 2010.  Home openers for both the New York Giants and NY Jets are a hot ticket.

2. Everyone wants to see the New Orleans Saints.  The Saints were truly America’s Team last season and capped up a marvelous season by winning the Super Bowl in Miami.  That demand for Saints tickets has carried over into 2010, both at home in the Superdome and on the road.  The Saints take on the Pittsburgh Steelers at home on Halloween, which is one of the hottest tickets early in the year.

3. America’s Team, the Dallas Cowboys, are a top draw wherever they play.  The Cowboys are always a big ticket and this year is no exception.  Away games against the Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans are both receiving a lot of demand.  Their home game against Saints on Thanksgiving is the biggest game on the home schedule.

4. Donovan McNabb returns to Philadelphia.  McNabb was traded to the Washington Redskins this off-season.  McNabb and his Skins play at the Eagles on Sunday, October 3rd.  Lots of Philly fans want to be at the Linc to see McNabb come home.

To buy NFL tickets for these teams or any other NFL team, please call 1-800-880-8886 or visit our NFL page at TicketCity.com.  To keep up with the latest moves your team makes, here is a link to an NFL Draft feature from our partners at Sports Illustrated.

Goodbye to a legendary venue: Texas Stadium

This past weekend in Irving, Texas the former home of the Dallas Cowboys was brought down.  The planned implosion was the culmination of months of preparation, but the actual destruction only lasted a few minutes.  Texas Stadium was the home of the Cowboys from 1971 to 2008, Dallas now plays in the new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
