For some people, sleeping outside the Metrodome the night before single-game tickets go on sale has become a rite of passage. With 74 consecutive Metrodome sellouts, for many fans there are few options other than E-bay to get tickets for a Vikes game.
But, for some brave souls prepared to camp out overnight, there is another option. The Vikings announced Tuesday that single-game tickets will go on sale Saturday, July 9. The process, as always, has two tiers. For those fans willing to hang out by Gate B, the ticket office window will open at 8 a.m. For those who can't make it to the Metrodome, tickets will go on sale at Ticketmaster at 9 a.m.
Historically, the tickets for Packers games haven't made it to Ticketmaster because they've been snapped up by the live-gate crowd. But, as the team instituted a couple of years ago, a new wrinkle to the policy remains in effect. If fans want tickets for the Oct. 23 game vs. the Pack, they will also have to buy tickets for the preseason opener vs. the Chiefs. In a strange decision, if fans want to attend the Dec. 18 game vs. the Steelers, they will have to buy tickets for the preseason game vs. the Chargers.
There is a limit of eight tickets per fan in line at the Dome July 9 and, if past history means anything, you may want to make your camping plans on Washington Avenue to assure you can get tickets -- unless you're willing to pay a scalper's prices later on.
