Wanna go to Super Bowl 52? You'll have to buy Vikings suite season tickets
The Minneapolis delegation celebrates moments after NFL Commissioner Goodell announced that Super Bowl 52 will be played in the new Vikings stadium.
Minnesota is super pumped about the NFL awarding Super Bowl 52 to Minneapolis, but fact is very few of us will be able to afford to go to the game.
That's because to merely have the possibility of getting a crack at tickets, you'll have to buy season tickets for a suite in the new stadium, a Vikings employee told us today.
The employee's comment is confirmed by a post on the Vikings' website.
New stadium suite prices aren't listed yet, but considering high-end club seats cost $400 a pop (with a $9,500 seat license to boot for those who want season tickets), there probably aren't enough banks to rob or people to scam to come up with that sort of dough.
Speaking of money and being super pumped, check out this video (unfortunately it's un-embeddable) of how the Minneapolis Super Bowl delegation, led by U.S. Bank CEO Richard Davis, reacted when NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made the somewhat surprising announcement that Super Bowl 52 would be played in Minnesota.
Think they'd get nearly that pumped if the actual Vikings team ever won a Super Bowl?
