Section 25.12 Professional sports organization membership pass

Arts and Cultural Affairs (ACA)

Notwithstanding section 25.30 of this article, an operator of a place of entertainment or such operator's agent may offer paperless tickets which do not allow for independent transferability provided that such tickets are included in a membership pass at a discounted price offered by a professional sports organization for seating in venues or stadiums with a fixed capacity of over thirty thousand seats that guarantees entry to a specified number of events in a specified time period with seat assignments assigned no more than four hours prior to the commencement of the event and such seat assignment must be variable from game to game and not intended for season ticket holders. Tickets provided under such membership pass may be restricted from being transferred or resold, including through the operator or operators' agents, and must be clearly marked as such prior to initial offering or sale. Such membership pass shall not mean a subscription or season ticket package offered for sale and shall not result in the sale of more than five percent of the maximum amount of all seats that will be made available at a venue for a particular event to be sold under this section.
