No Ticket Price Hike

The Vikings appear intent on making sure fans can get season tickets with as little pain as possible.

In addition to continuing their eLayaway program which allows payments to be spread out over 26 weeks, the Vikings have announced they will not be raising the prices of season tickets in 2011.

“There were multiple factors,” said Steve LaCroix, the Vikings Chief Marketing Officer. “We wanted to acknowledge our fan base for their patience during the process of some definite inconveniences toward the end of last season. … We wanted to make that gesture and make sure we put them in the best spot possible to renew their tickets.”

Today, the team is expecting to receive word of a recommendation from the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission assessment of the Metrodome.

    “…and we didn’t think it might sit too well with our fans to raise our prices following a season of winning only one third of our games.” I guess some things can’t be openly said.

    Although the CBA talks have hit a standstill I found this interesting…

    “In addition to the flat 50 percent share of all revenue, players are willing to grant additional credits to any franchise that reinvests in stadium improvement, a mechanism to motivate clubs to grow revenues”

    Why do Viking need costly new stadium rather update the Dump(See http://www.bcplacestadium.com)? Because with new stadium Wilf can GROW revenues
    1) NFL Stadium fund
    2) NFLPA credits
    3) other ‘Republican-initiated’ federal tax credits eg. accelerated depreciation.

    Minneapolis market realities may not dicatate need for 10,000 additional seats and double boxes. However, the League and the Players may be pushing growth.

    Ted Mondale is wondering, “Why do we need another expensive, custom facility for each and every sport team?” Look at motivation that drives the funding sources.

    Get me another one of those $ 6 pretzels, will ya….
