Here’s the playbook for the Vikings plans to move their fans to TCF Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota:
The team has posted the map and ticket prices on their website. Prices range from $35 to $139 for season tickets, per game.
The Vikings are planning to unveil more of their plans for the upcoming season at TCF Bank stadium tomorrow at Winter Park, including the policy they used to reallocate season tickets. Team spokesman Jeff Anderson said ticket prices rose generally from a low of $31 a game to $35 per game, with a high rising from $131 to $135. But because there are about 12,000 fewer seats at the Bank, he said there is a lot of moving around and fans may pay more or less than that general increase. “Results may vary,” he said. But Anderson says that the Vikings think fans will get some added value — albeit colder — from their experience at the Bank. “It’s a unique experience, better sight lines, wider concourses. There’s lots of benefits to fand in this stadium compared to Mall of America Field.”
Still, some fans have been experiencing sticker shock. A few responses:
A lot of angry Vikings ticket season holders out there apparently. I feel for y'all, but what did ya expect w/ a new stadium on the way?!

Noticing that upper deck corner endzone equivalent seats are $60 when they were $42 at the Dome. OUCH. $18 better?

Still on the agenda: Modifications to TCF Bank stadium and field, and the “Good Neighbor Fund,” meant to help smooth the Vikings move to their new, albeit temporary, home. That’s expected to be rolled out in coming weeks.
