How Much of a Deal Are Vikings Tickets Compared to Other NFL Teams?
The Vikings are getting ready to open U.S. Bank Stadium to full capacity this season, but just how much of a deal are Vikings tickets compared to other NFL teams?
As the Minnesota Vikings and other teams around the National Football League get ready for a much more normal training camp this year, they're also looking forward to filling up U.S. Bank Stadium to its full capacity of fans for its eight regular-season home games.
But just how much of a deal are Vikings tickets compared to other NFL teams? That was the question The Action Network asked when they put together a new survey that looked at which NFL team has seen its average ticket price rise the most over the last 15 years. The data was collected through Statista and was correct as of February 2021, the survey noted.
And, according to their results, tickets to do the SKOL cheer at U.S. Bank Stadium while the Vikings are on the field are actually fairly reasonable-- at least when compared to other NFL teams. The Vikings placed 22nd out of 32 on their survey of teams whose ticket prices have increased the most since 2006.
According to the survey, the Vikings' average ticket price is $108.79, a 53% increase in the last 15 years when the ticket was only $71.32. That's far cheaper than, say, their NFC North rival Green Bay Packers, whose average ticket price is now $128.93, good for third place in the survey with a whopping 121% increase since 2006 when tickets to the Frozen Tundra were only $58.39.
The Las Vegas Raiders tickets were the most expensive in the survey, running you an average of $153.47, up 147% over the last 15 years-- the biggest jump in the survey. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Chargers were the cheapest, with an average price of just $78.38, a meager increase of a paltry 25% since 2006.
Seeing as the Vikings ticket price is, on average, fairly cheap (compared to other NFL teams), where are the cheapest places to live here in Minnesota? Is Rochester or YOUR town on the list? Keep scrolling to find out!
