For those who want to be a part of the Vikings’ final season at TCF Bank Stadium and aren’t already season ticket holders, your chance comes at 10 a.m. Central today, as the Vikings open up single-game ticket sales for the 10-game home schedule.
A limited number of tickets will be available at the Vikings ticket office, located at 1010 Seventh Street South in Minneapolis. Tickets can also be purchased through Ticketmaster – at its website (www.ticketmaster.com), in person at all Ticketmaster outlets including those in Walmart stores or by calling 800-745-3000. Those looking to purchase tickets need to be forewarned that they need either cash or credit cards (checks will not be accepted).
Single-game ticket prices will range from $44-150 and tickets are available for all 10 games. However, anyone who has purchased Vikings tickets in recent years knows that there is one caveat to that rule – if you want to buy tickets for the Packers game, you’re going to have to double up your order.
There are three ticket packages available for those interested in buying tickets for the Packers game Nov. 22. For every ticket purchased for the Green Bay game, another ticket needs to be purchased for one of three other games – St. Louis on Nov. 8, Chicago on Dec. 20 or the New York Giants on Nov. 27.
2015 season tickets are still available for purchase, starting as low as $350. Purchasing season tickets gives ticketholders immediate access to purchase 2016 season tickets in the inaugural season in U.S. Bank Stadium. Season ticket prices reflect a 25 percent discount over the cost of buying individual game tickets and include several benefits that are reserved for season ticket holders. To purchase season tickets, fans can call 612-33-VIKES (612-338-4537).
As was the case last season, given the restrictions imposed on the Vikings by the University of Minnesota, all regular-season home games will be played at noon local time. As part of the temporary stadium deal between the Vikings and the U of M, the Vikings agreed not to host a prime-time game while school was in session. That effectively left only Thanksgiving weekend or the final two weeks of the regular season for the Vikings to host a game on what was termed “a school night” – which includes Sunday nights, Monday nights and Thursday nights.
Barring a flex-scheduled game in the final two weeks of the home schedule Dec. 20 and Dec. 27, the Vikings will be playing all their home games on Sunday afternoons at noon.
If you want to say you were there when the Vikings played in cold and snow, that window is closing and it will start closing in earnest today given the excitement surrounding the 2015 Vikings and the novelty of seeing outdoor home games for a long, long time.
