Minnesota Vikings Freeze Ticket Prices For 2011 Season

As the NFL owners steam towards locking out the players the Minnesota Vikings made an interesting PR move yesterday as they announced that they would not raise ticket prices for the 2011 season.

According to the Star Tribune newspaper in Minneapolis, Vikings season tickets for next year will continue to range from $29 to $128 per game. This is the second time in three years the Vikings didn’t raise prices; they hiked tickets an average of 3% after reaching the NFC Championship Game in 2009.

The next twelve months are huge for the Vikings because their lease at the Metrodome runs out at the end of the 2011 season and the Vikings have no interest in remaining in the facility.

As a result, the Vikings are one of the teams most mentioned as a possibility to move to Los Angeles if that city ever gets a new stadium. Entertainment giant AEG, one of the two groups trying to drum up financing for a stadium, announced earlier this month it had reached a 30-year, $700 million naming rights agreement with Farmers Insurance Exchange that would go into effect if AEG is able to build a facility near AEG properties Staples Center and LA Live.
