News Radio 1200 WOAI: People who have been e-mailed that survey by the California based Barrett Sports Group about their interest in the NFL’s Oakland Raiders coming to San Antonio are being asked about their experiences in the Alamodome, what they think of the dome, and how much they would pay for season tickets, reports Newsradio 1200 WOAI’s Michael Board, who first revealed the existence of the survey.
The story has now gone nationwide, as interest is rising about the possible relocation of the NFL franchise.
The survey, which was provided to Newsradio 1200 WOAI by several people who received in their e-mail, is headlined ‘NFL SURVEY, POTENTIAL RELOCATION OF OAKLAND RAIDERS.’
It begins by asking people basic information about where they live, and then asks ‘what is your favorite NFL team?’
It then gauges interest in a variety of sports, and asks whether the individual has ‘purchased single game tickets’ for teams ranging from the Spurs to the Dallas Cowboys to UTSA football.
“Do you (or your company) currently lease premium seating, such as a luxury suite or club seat, at any of the following stadiums or arenas,” the survey asks. “If applicable, please make multiple selections.”
It lists stadiums ranging from the AT&T Center to Kyle Field.
“Would you (or your company) potentially be interested in purchasing season tickets for the Raiders at the Alamodome?”
The Raiders lease in Oakland expires after this season and it has been no secret that owner, Mark Davis, refuses to share a stadium with the 49ers. The city of Oakland has refrained from committing to building a new stadium for the NFL franchise so Davis has taken to the road. He visited San Antonio this summer and it seems that some wheels are in motion as this survey is joint funded by the city and and the Raiders. This would bring a 3rd NFL franchise to Texas. San Antonio has supported their professional franchises well over the years so this could be an interesting fit for the Raiders.
Just took this survey to help bring the Raiders to Alamo City! #NFLinSA #SanAntonioRaiders
