Eden Prairie, MN (December 16, 2010) - The Minnesota Vikings have announced the ticket policy and game logistics for the upcoming Monday night Vikings-Bears game at TCF Bank Stadium.
The Minnesota Vikings policy will affect the original account owner of record for Bears-Vikings tickets purchased through the Vikings and Ticketmaster only.
All ticket holders will use their Vikings-Bears game tickets for Mall of America Field at the Metrodome to enter TCF Bank Stadium and seating will be general admission by lower and upper levels.
Mall of America Field at the Metrodome Lower-Level Ticket Holders (100 level)
Ticket holders with lower-level tickets (100 level) will get lower-level seating access at TCF Bank Stadium (general admission) - UNTIL SEATING IS AT CAPACITY.
