SEATTLE - The Seahawks have created a “President’s Fan Advisory Council” for members of the 12th Man to give input on improving the overall experience for Seahawks fans, in Seattle and all over.

The team will select — you guessed it — 12 season-ticket holders to join the council. Those fans will have “direct access, both online and face-to-face, with team executives in addition to an open forum to share their thoughts and ideas with those who can implement change,” the Seahawks said in their announcement.

“The Fan Advisory Council will play an important role in our efforts to maintain and enhance the Seahawks fan experience,” Seahawks president Peter McLoughlin said in the announcement.

“We will hold quarterly meetings to discuss and focus on a variety of fan-related issues including: in-stadium fan experience, game presentation and in-stadium technology.”

Seahawks fans can apply for a position on the council via an online form.

Applicants must be season-ticket holders and at least 21 years old. The team is looking for fans from “varied backgrounds and cities” to serve on the council for two years.

Applications are due by July 12. The first meeting of the President’s Fan Advisory Council is planned for the fall.
