EAGAN, Minn. —The Vikings on Wednesday announced a shift to mobile entry for games and events such as Verizon Vikings Training Camp.
The Vikings first introduced mobile entry via smartphones at home games in 2014. Fans also had the option of printing PDFs of tickets through 2017, but printouts will be eliminated in 2018, per an NFL policy.
Fans can access their tickets through the free Vikings App, which is available for Apple or Android and can be downloaded here, or vikings.com/tickets, save them to the device for easy stadium entry, conveniently transfer them to someone else or safely participate in the secondary marketplace on NFL-licensed platforms like NFL Ticket Exchange, StubHub and Seat Geek.
The four primary reasons for the change to mobile entry only are:
- Communication — the team can provide real-time information regarding road closures or delays at stadium gates
- Security — this will prevent counterfeit tickets sold on the street
- Accessibility — fans will be able to flexibly manage, transfer or sell tickets at any time
- Efficiency — quick and easy entry by using a smartphone
As previously announced, training camp will be free but ticketed to maximize fan experiences during the first summer session at Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center. Tickets for training camp practices will be available later this month.
