Vikings Fans Commit to 30,000 Seats in First Nine Months; Season Ticket Member Exclusivity Expiring
In case you missed it earlier this week, multiple media outlets reported that Vikings fans have committed to approximately 30,000 seats in the new stadium through the first nine months of sales.
"The response from Vikings fans since we began this process in March has been overwhelmingly positive," said Vikings Executive Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer Steve LaCroix. "We expected a strong fan reaction but this is a true testament of the passion and loyalty Vikings fans have for this team and the excitement they have for the new stadium."
Seats went on sale just nine months ago after Van Wagner Sports & Entertainment was contracted to market and sell the new stadium, and to date, ticket sales account for more than $80 million in SBLs, more than doubling the $37 million goal for 2014. Van Wagner and the Vikings have now contacted Season Ticket Members in all 16 zones, whose exclusivity will expire in January 2015. Shortly thereafter, fans who joined as new Season Ticket Members in 2014 (nearly 6,000 new season tickets were sold in 2014) will begin selecting seats followed by sales to the general public opening in March. Fans can join the waitlist here.
Team Adds New Seating Products
Due to the success of suite sales, the Vikings and Van Wagner have chosen to introduce 15 new 10-person Norseman Lounge Suites, bringing the stadium's suite total to 131. Of the 131, already 75 suites have been committed to date, and only two of the original offerings – Loft Suites & Turf Suites – have availability.
The team is also set to unveil Club Purple, an all-inclusive space that features lounge-type seating and loge boxes accommodating 8-12 seats. Club Purple will serve as the stadium's fantasy sports headquarters highlighted by innovative sports content distribution to mobile devices and 4k television displays, as well as video gaming and media broadcast integration.
The Norseman Suites and Club Purple will both be available in early 2015. To sign up for more information, click here.
