Minnesota Vikings seat licenses going fast for U.S. Bank Stadium


Season tickets are going fast for the Minnesota Vikings first season at U.S. Bank Stadium, with 90% of the goal reached for stadium builder’s licenses.

With the NFL’s Super Bowl yet to be played, it’s hard to look forward to the 2016 season already. However with U.S. Bank Stadium opening later this year to become the new home of the Minnesota Vikings, seat licenses and season tickets are moving fast.

According to an article on the Star Tribune website, a Wednesday report by the Minnesota Vikings revealed that the team has sold 90% of the available “stadium builder’s licenses”and are just $10 million shy of a $125 million sales goal for seat licenses.

While Minnesota Vikings chief marketing officer Steve LaCroix is happy with the sales so far, he knows there is still ways to go before they hit that $125 mark:

"“We’re in a good place; We still have a lot of work to do to get to that $125 million goal,” LaCroix said."

Those sales numbers date all the way back to spring of 2014, but it is likely that things will heat up on sales as the 2016 NFL season inches closer. This is the first time that seat licenses have been offered in the Twin Cities, and it is a much different experience for regular season ticket holders of the Minnesota Vikings.

Seat licenses are a one-time fee that gives an individual the first opportunity at purchasing tickets for those particular seats. They are valid for 30 years, but can only be used at Minnesota Vikings games and not other events held at U.S. Bank Stadium.

"“We’re eager to see what happens when the NFL season is over on Sunday,” LaCroix said, referring to the Super Bowl."

With the highest and lowest price seat licenses sold, the remaining prices are $2,000, $2,250 and $2,550. For more information on the seat licenses at U.S. Bank Stadium for Minnesota Vikings game, be sure to visit the official U.S. Bank Stadium website.
