Seat assignments at TCF were made based on a loose mix of current seat location, number of current seats, and seniority, Huebner said.
The squeeze is on in the luxury suites as well. The team sells 60 suites for the season at the Metrodome. The TCF stadium has 38 suites, and Gophers suite-holders have first dibs on those for the Vikings games. Roughly one-third of the suite-holders have told the Vikings of their plans and of those, half are signing on for the NFL season, according to J.P. Paul, director of new stadium corporate development.
TCF also has 60 “loge boxes,” outdoor seating with chair-side food and beverage service, which could appease some suite-holders at the interim site, Paul said.
The team expects to hold another briefing in a couple of weeks with more details on amenities and upgrades.
Still unknown is whether the team will find a means to provide heating for fans during frigid winter games or whether the team’s new coach will insist on a new quarterback.
The team has posted ticket prices and other information on its website, www.vikings.com. The top season-ticket price is $1,390 for 10 games ($139 per game), up slightly from last year’s $1,197 for nine games ($133). The lowest season-ticket price is $350 ($35 per game), up from last season’s $279 ($31 per game). Season-ticket packages include preseason games.
