Estate Planning for Football Season Ticket Owners

August 30, 2011

I recently read an interesting article about how estate planning attorneys in Wisconsin are using estate planning techniques to keep Green Bay Packers season tickets in the family. Green Bay Packers season tickets have been sold out since 1960, and the waiting list is miles, perhaps generations, long! The Packers organization has a very clear-cut policy for passing along season tickets at death, and the ticket office at Lambeau Field has a transfer form that is easy to complete. If a Green Bay Packers season-ticket holder dies without completing a transfer form, there’s the possibility that the beneficiaries of the estate won’t agree on how to take ownership of the tickets, and the tickets would then revert back to the Packers to be sold to one of the 87,000 people on its waiting list. Season ticket owners have a strong sentimental attachment to their season tickets as many families have had their Packers season tickets for decades. Planning for the transfer of this asset has been a focus for estate planning attorneys in Wisconsin and their clients are impressed when they discover that such a valued asset can be transferred in such a simple and inexpensive manner.
