Vikings single-game tickets go on sale Wednesday and demand is likely to be high for what the team calls “an extremely limited number” of seats for the season.

Including two preseason games, the Vikings play at their new stadium 10 times this fall. The first game is Aug. 28 vs. the San Diego Chargers. The final regular season home game is Jan. 1 vs. the Chicago Bears.

The first regular-season game is expected to be an extremely tough ticket as the Vikings take on the rival Green Bay Packers at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 18.

The Legislature requires the Vikings to offer for sale 3,250 single-game seats. The team will sell 4,000 per game.

All single-game seats are on the 300 level. The preseason game tickets sell for $28. Seats for the Packers, New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys games are $58. Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Arizona and Indianapolis are $50.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. They are available only online or by calling 1-800-745-3000. Only credit cards are accepted as payment.

The majority of seats required fans to purchase one-time stadium-builder licenses before they could buy their season tickets. The Vikings report they have 700 licenses remaining for season tickets, meaning the team already has sold 49,000. Of the 131 suites, all but one have been sold.

Fans who want to purchase the licenses and season tickets should call 952-918-8599.

Revenue from the seat licenses goes to the team owners. The ribbon-cutting for the new building is scheduled for Friday with an open house this weekend. Tickets for that event are free but can also be obtained through Ticketmaster.
