VIKINGS' TICKET SALES COOL: In Minneapolis, Kevin Seifert reports the Vikings “have tickets available for all eight home games and are even selling partial season-ticket plans” at a time of year “when they typically have sold all of their tickets.” Vikings VP/Sales & Marketing Steve LaCroix acknowledged single-game ticket sales have dropped “a few percentage points,” but he added, “We feel confident that we’ll sell out every game this year. ... Things might be different if we were sitting here with 10,000 unsold seats for a game. That’s not the case at all.” While about 1,000 tickets remain for the September 17 home opener against the Panthers, the Vikings packaged tickets to that game with the November 12 game against the Packers, their “hottest ticket.” Fans “who want to purchase a single-game ticket to watch the Packers are required to purchase an equivalent ticket” for the opener (STAR TRIBUNE, 9/6).
