Training camp doesn’t start until Friday for the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks.
But the team already has pulled off one repeat, duplicating the feat of a year ago of selling out every ticket for the regular season before training camp begins. The last tickets were snapped up quickly after going on sale Monday at 10 a.m.
The Seahawks had earlier announced they had sold all available 63,000 season tickets for 2014, achieving a franchise-record 99 percent renewal rate.
Monday, the tickets that were left were put on sale, available online and at the CenturyLink Field box office.

The team said it also sold a limited number of tickets to fans on its Blue Pride season-ticket waiting list, which numbers 12,000.
The Seahawks reported that a few fans began camping out early Sunday morning for the 1,000 upper-level tickets for each game that were available at the box office.
By early afternoon Monday, all remaining tickets were gone, assuring that the team’s streak of 95 consecutive sellouts, including playoff games, won’t end this season.
The team has also sold each of the roughly 2,800 tickets available for 12 open training-camp practices at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center, the team’s training facility in Renton.
All that is left through the team are a few tickets for exhibition home games against San Diego on Aug. 15 and Chicago on Aug. 22.
