Last month, AEW began selling tickets to their event’s at Jacksonville’s Daily’s Place. They’re currently only filling about 15% of capacity, with masks required and social distancing between small “pods” of fans who purchased seat together. The experiment seems to be a success, with the live in-person reactions adding to the shows and no reports of COVID outbreaks started by Dynamite attendees.
With plans to continue with the same policy for the next couple months (at least), the company today announced they’re selling a “season pass” for tapings. $175 plus associated fees will get you access to seven Dynamite/Dark tapings, starting with the one on Weds., Sept. 23.
Join us this Fall with the "Dynamite Seven" Season Pass for upcoming #AEW televised live events in Sep, Oct, Nov at @dailysplace in Jacksonville, FL, beginning with the 9/23 show.

Presuming the deal is for consecutive shows - and there’s nothing to indicate it isn’t - this would run through the Full Gear go home episode on Weds., Nov. 4. It’s possibly fans will be able to pick and choose seven dates from among the 10 Wednesdays between Sept. 23 and the end of November, however.
The “season pass” limits the number of transactions AEW has to process, and theoretically gives them a group of regular attendees they can count on to make noise and follow the rules.
Sounds like a good idea to us. Agree?
