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.
