Vikings Ticket Sales Continue To Climb

Posted by Mike Wobschall on August 20, 2010 – 1:18 pm

Coming off a 12-4 season with 10 Pro Bowlers and an appearance in the NFC title game, the Vikings experienced strong ticket sales and season ticket owner renewal rates this past offseason. Now with QB Brett Favre back in the fold, the Vikings have seen yet another surge in ticket sales.

The Vikings added 800 new season ticket owner accounts in the 48 hours after Favre returned to Minnesota earlier this week, and those numbers supplement the 94% renewal rate the club already had from last year’s season ticket owners. That renewal rate, which comes on the heels of one of the most exciting seasons in the franchise’s 50 years, is the highest the Vikings have seen since the 2001 season.

While the spike in season ticket owner accounts this past week is undoubtedly Favre-related, the Vikings already had strong group and single-game ticket sales since the NFL released its schedule earlier in the offseason. The Vikings home slate of games features NFC North rivals as well as attractive opponents such as the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants.

A limited quantity of single-game tickets remain for sale, with the exception of the team’s home game against the Green Bay Packers, which is already sold out.

Also, season ticket owner sales are likely to end early next week.

    He had a tremendous year last year. There’s no doubt that Brett Favre is a Hall of Fame quarterback. But I’ve lost respect for Brett in what he’s done the last five years, and I’ve lost some respect to where an organization has to go to win a Super Bowl … and thinking that this is the only way to do it. So, here we go again. It’s win a Super Bowl (or bust) for the Vikings.”

    This quote is from Ron Woodson. Only one thing comes to mind. Who the fu*k cares what he and Teddy Bruski thinks. Let’s take car of business and that starts with opening a can of whopas on the Saints and Drew Brees. Skol brothers.

    Who cares about Woodson. He’s a jealous old has-been who Brett bested time and time again on the football field. It’s sort of the same old sad refrain from all these early retirees on the airwaves. I just wish more people would see them for what they are – peagreen with envy!!! As for me, I got 2 of those home tickets for the Pack game, so happy I did! SKOL Vikings!

    hey kw,
    you still can go to the game. There are plenty of people who buy up quantities of tickets and sell them on sites such as stubhub.com, ticketking.com, and one I just discovered ticketsinventory.com. Not the best seats and they jack the prices, but there isn’t too many bad seats in the dome. you can also get tickets from season ticket holders at ticketexchange.com. Hope to see you there. SKOL VIKINGS!!!

    If season tickets are still available, there is no waiting list which indicates a lack of fan support.
    Thank goodness for a few x-packers on your team.

    Bottom line is that any of the retired football players that trash talk Brett are just JEALOUS of his talent and the attention he gets. It’s pretty obvious because Brett doesn’t trash talk other players but he does make a comment now and then about coaches and their style of coaching LOL

    ZIGGY, BEING THAT THIS MIGHT BE BRETT’S LAST YEAR IN THE NFL AND BEING THAT HE IS ONE OF THE MOST KNOWLEDGEABLE OFFENSIVE PLAYERS IN THE LEAGUE, WHAT IF THE VIKINGS LET HIM TRY RUNNING THE OFFENSE AND CALL THE PLAYS A FEW GAMES THIS YEAR AND SEE WHERE IT GOES?

    Breet is over-rated and the vikes and the rest of football knows it. Mr. Woodson is trying to let the vikes know this but they have a blindfold on. When the vikes comedown to the who that nation, the vikes will wish they never came. Go Saints The Superbowl Champs of 44!

    No one cares about Rod Woodson. Why is he on TV? We don’t care what he thinks. He has shown he is an idiot.

    I live in california and have been a life long vikings,about forty or so and would love to go to a game at my home teams field at least once in my life . I<m thinking this might be the best year to do it!

    Add Teddy Bruschi to the list of Favre haters. He’s worse than Woodson because Bruschi’s accusation that Favre wanted more $$$ shows that he knows nothing about Favre’s character. He would play this game for nothing, unlike most of the idiots being drafted now who get paid $50 million before they’ve even played their first game. Someone should confront Bruschi about the fact that his team cheated to win their 3 Super Bowls! This will be the Vikings year to win it all! SKOL Vikings!
