Vikings announce new stadium sells out for inaugural season
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Vikings have sold out their new stadium for the inaugural season.
The team announced on Thursday that they've started waiting lists for tickets and suites. The official capacity at U.S. Bank Stadium will be 66,655, with more than 60,400 seats committed for the entire season and the remaining single-game seats also sold out.
Returned tickets from visiting team allotments typically make a small number of seats available the week of each game.
The Vikings host San Diego on Sunday in an exhibition game, their first action at the $1.1 billion venue. The regular-season opener is on Sept. 18 against rival Green Bay.
