Reader and Access Vikings fan Justin G. alerted us to an interesting fact this morning when he sent an e-mail noting that single-game tickets for select Vikings regular-season games already were available through Ticketmaster.com.
That was interesting because we had been working under the assumption that single-game tickets wouldn’t go on sale until July 20, although that date has yet to be officially announced. Following up on Justin’s tip we went to the Ticketmaster site (via http://www.vikings.com/) and went through each game.
Sure enough we found it was possible that if we wanted we could use a credit card to purchase tickets to home games on Nov. 15 against Detroit; Nov. 22 against Seattle; Dec. 13 against Cincinnati; and Jan. 3 against the New York Giants. Tickets have yet to go on sale for these games: Sept. 27 against San Francisco; Oct. 5 against Green Bay; Oct. 18 against Baltimore; and Nov. 29 against Chicago.
Tickets for those games should be available starting on Monday, according to this link where it says “single-game tickets for most games for the 2009 season are tentatively scheduled to go on sale on July 20.”
As for how any of this fits into the grand scheme of Brett Favre potentially joining the Vikings we have no clue.
Steve LaCroix, the Vikings’ vice president of sales and marketing and chief marketing officer, said in an e-mail a formal release on exact timing and details of single-game ticket sales will be released in the coming days.
