The Vikings say a limited number of single-game tickets will go on sale Thursday of next week through Ticketmaster.

Purchasing them is the only direct way remaining to attend a 2018 Vikings home game because season tickets are sold out and there is a waiting list exceeding 1,500 people.

Single-game tickets for two preseason games start at $20 (Aug. 18 vs. Jacksonville and Aug. 24 vs. Seattle).

Tickets for a regular-season game will cost at least $58, up from a minimum of $30 last season.
