Vikings Fans To Be Charged Expensive Seat Liscenses In New Stadium Twist
Minnesota Vikings fans are going to be footing more of the bill for the team’s new stadium. In new twist, the Associated Press reports that ticket holders will pay an average of $2,500 for the right to buy a season ticket in the team’s new stadium.
The seat licenses are part of contracts negotiated with the team and made public Thursday. The licenses will be required for three-quarters of the stadium’s 65,000 seats.
The Associat Press reports that these seat licenses could start as low as $500 and will range up to $10,000. Fans who pay them off within three years won’t pay interest.
The licenses are part of two key stadium development agreements. Gov. Mark Dayton had warned the Vikings against excessive seat-license costs. Dayton told reporters that doesn’t like licenses now either, but the state had to make a deal.
Projected revenues on e-pull tabs were severely lagging.
