Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I send an item to the front office to have the team and/or a player sign it?
No, due to the large volume of requests receive each year we do not accept personal items to be autographed. The Seahawks Pro Shop has player autograph sessions every Tuesday beginning in September and ending late December at which you can get personal items autographed.
Will they have autograph sessions like last year on Tuesday nights?
Player autograph sessions will be held at the Seahawks Pro Shop every Tuesday beginning in September and ending late December.
For an updated schedule and list of players appearing visit the Pro Shop online and click "Meet the Seahawks". The one hour autograph sessions run from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. The store will close at 7:00pm promptly. Fans can begin to line up at 4:00pm outside the Pro Shop doors, against the Stadium wall. Holding places in line is not permitted. Due to varying line length, we cannot always guarantee that all those in line will receive autographs, although CenturyLink Field staff will do their best to accommodate as many fans as possible. Autographs are limited to 2 per person for this purpose. We regret that we cannot accept pre-orders for signed merchandise.
Due to time constraints, the Seahawks reserve the right to limit or discontinue photographs. Due to new NFL security procedures, fans may not linger inside the Pro Shop or behind the players during autograph sessions. Once their items have been signed, fans are asked to exit the Pro Shop. CenturyLink Field security staff will be on hand to ensure the safety of players, staff, and fans. Parking is available in the North Lot at posted rates. Metered parking is located adjacent to the North Lot on Occidental and King Streets. For additional information, please call (206) 682-2900.
Behavior in the Stands
If someone is using obscene language in front of my kids and I've asked them to stop, who should I contact?
You can text-message HAWK12 (429512) at any point during the game to report fan activity that has disrupted your enjoyment of the game or to report spills or housekeeping issues that require attention. You may also contact the nearest usher or stadium staff member.
Bringing Items to the Stadium
I'm coming straight from the airport to the game (or going from the game to the airport). Can I store my luggage at the stadium?
Unfortunately, we do not have a place to store luggage at CenturyLink Field. Clear bags that are 12" x 6" x 12" or smaller are allowed in the stadium provided that they do not contain items on our prohibited items list.
If it's hot out, can I bring in a bottle of water?

Why can't I bring my mixed drink from the Club bar back to my seats?

I live in California and would like to have an item donated to my child's school, is this possible?
Unfortunately, due to the number of requests we receive we have established a regional focus for in-kind donations. Organizations located in the Pacific Northwest (WA, AK, OR, ID, MT) that are centered on youth football and soccer will generally receive support, depending on the nature and scope of the request or event. If your organization is located outside of this region please contact the NFL team located nearest to you to request a donation.

National Anthem, Halftime & Gameday Performances
How can I be considered to sing the National Anthem before a game or perform at halftime?
All anthem submissions must be sent in through our online system. Please complete this form and be prepared to upload a demo. (1) We require a vocal, acapella demo of you singing the National Anthem for all submissions. (2) This demo should be no longer than 90 seconds.
I reviewed the submission form and still have questions. How can I contact you?
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We review all submissions but do not guarantee a call back.
How can I be considered to perform in/around the stadium on a Seahawks game day?
Other Entertainment Requirements.Submissions should be sent in through our online system. Please complete this form and be prepared to upload a demo, website information and links to past performances. (1) All halftime performances must be six minutes or less. (2) Bands are expected to perform cover songs. You may also play a mix of original music. (3) These performances are not paid gigs.
Where can I park if I don't have a season pass?
There are many private lots located South of Safeco Field and North of the CenturyLink Field in and around Pioneer Square and under the 99 Viaduct downtown.
If I carry a disabled placard, does that give me automatic access to the North Lot?
Unfortunately, it does not give automatic access. If you do not have a prepaid season pass, it is unlikely you will be able to park in the North Lot. It is a good idea to make alternate plans such as using the drop off area in front of the Pro Shop on Occidental Avenue.
My husband wants me to drop him off at the "Drop Off Area". Where is that?
The drop off area is located in front of the Seahawks Pro Shop on Occidental Avenue. Since this street is blocked off at King Street and Royal Brougham, the ONLY way to access this area is from 1st Avenue onto Railroad Way South. This area is available both before and after every game. Please be patient and follow police instructions, as this area can get congested close to game time.
I am a season ticket holder and would like to purchase parking. Is there anything available?
Parking is extremely limited and is renewed by our season ticket holders each year. Please contact your account representative at (888) 635-4295 to get the most up-to-date information.
Can cars or RV's park at the Stadium overnight to tailgate?
No they cannot. This was done on a trial basis for a few games in 2003. Unfortunately, security needs, police, noise, and complaints from local neighbors prohibit us from trying this again. Please call (888) 635-4295 for some RV Park alternatives.
It is hard to know where to park if you do not have a pass. Any suggestions?
Since majority of the parking adjacent to the Stadium is reserved and sold out on a season basis, the best alternatives are the Union Station Garage on 4th Avenue or the Safeco Garage adjacent to Safeco Field (where the Mariners play). If you come late, those may be full as well so you will want to head south and look for one of the many private lots.
If I don't have a pass can I drive down King Street and try to see if they will let me in the Lot?
King Street will be restricted to passholders for the North Lot. Try going to Union Station Lot on 4th Avenue or any private lot South of the Stadium.

The name Seahawks
How did the team get the name Seahawks?
In June of 1975 a contest was held to name the team. After receiving more than 20,000 entries the name Seahawks was chosen.
What is a Seahawk?
Seahawk is another name for an osprey. Ospreys are birds that live on rivers and sea coasts all over the world. They have a wing span of 4 to 6 feet, and body length of 22" to 25". Seahawks soar over the water to hunt for fish, and unlike eagles, ospreys often dive completely under water, using powerful talons to grab their prey.
Ticket Scalpers Info
I see people selling tickets outside the stadium. Is this legal?
It is illegal to sell tickets at any price on Seahawks property. We have added extra security and police patrols to help deter this bothersome practice.
Is it safe to buy tickets off the street? They claim to have some great seats.
A: It is absolutely NOT safe to buy tickets from anyone selling on the street. Most of the time these tickets have been reported stolen, are counterfeit, or missing from someone's mailbox. Fans who choose this route, do so at their own risk. The Seahawks assume no responsibility for tickets purchased anywhere other than authorized Seahawks sources.
What is the news policy on Seahawks.com?
As Seahawks fans you probably wonder why ESPN can run a "crawl" that says the Seahawks have agreed to a contract with , or the Seattle Times writes on its website that we've agreed to a deal with - and that information is not on the team's official website. The simple answer is: agents.
Reporters stay in contact with players' agents and those agents will alert good reporters when the agent has agreed to a contract. As a team, we have to be more cautious with that information. First, we usually wait until a player passes the physical and signs the contract before we announce anything. Second, there have been examples when an agent agrees to a contract, uses that as leverage with another team and then takes the player someplace else. So, we have to be a little more cautious with that information. In the end, we'll have more information because of our contact with the players.
