Seattle Dragons open additional seating ahead of home opener

Despite dropping their season opener on the road against the D.C. Defenders, 31-19, the XFL’s Seattle Dragons anticipate having one of the best home crowds in the entire eight-team league.

In fact, due to recent demand, the team announced Monday they will open additional seating sections at CenturyLink Field in advance of their home opener on Saturday, February 15 at 2 p.m. against the Tampa Bay Vipers.

Single-game tickets are on sale for $24 and season tickets are $20 each, or $100 for all five home games.

“Affordability and access for our fans comes first and we are thrilled to open additional sections to accommodate our fans,” Seattle Dragons Team President Ryan Gustafson was quoted in a press release. “We are grateful and excited about the support we’ve received from the incredible sports fans of Seattle leading into our first home game on the 15th at CenturyLink Field.”

The Dragons have plenty of familiar faces on the roster for Seahawks fans, including a pair of former Seattle receivers in Kasen Williams and Keenan Reynolds — who scored the team’s first one-point conversion on Saturday.

However, inconsistent play from quarterback Brandon Silvers, who threw two interceptions, led to the defeat in Week 1.

“A few errors can really affect the game,” head coach and former Seahawks quarterback Jim Zorn said after the game. “We have to overcome those.”

Football fans in Seattle who want to see the Dragons in action can purchase tickets on the XFL website, or can tune in on FOX for the broadcast.
