Seats for the San Francisco 49ers new stadium in Santa Clara are selling well, the team reports.

The Niners have already sold $670M in seats, as 70 percent of current season-ticket holders have committed to seats and luxury boxes, "as most longtime members of the Niner faithful decided to stick with their beloved team despite huge price increases," the San Jose Mercury News reported.

In announcing the early results from the team's first sales wave, the team said the ticket holders "committed to spend thousands of dollars each to keep their spots when the new field opens in two years."

A total of 26,520 seats in the upper deck, end zones and corners were sold in three months, the paper said. Most of the remaining seats are of the less-expensive variety.

The club said that since 2011, they have sold nearly three-quarters of their luxury suites, "which can cost as much as a new house," the paper said.
