NFL Franchise Notes: Bruce Allen Set To Take On Bigger Challenge With Redskins

SUPPLY & DEMAND: FORBES’ Jesse Lawrence notes with the Vikings to play outdoors at TCF Bank Stadium this season, the team’s tickets are “among the bottom third in the league on the secondary market, but are still 27.7% above the average price from last season.” Data from TiqIQ shows that the “average price for Vikings tickets across the 2014 season is $153.67.” With a “capacity loss of 14,000 from the Metrodome to TCF Bank Stadium, a jump in price from last season is not surprising.” Last season, home games had “an average price of $120.31 with the most expensive game coming for the final game in the Metrodome with an average price of $257.20” (FORBES.com, 7/22).
HORSE PARADE: In Indianapolis, Abby Hamblin noted the Colts’ Kickoff Concert is back, with Blues Traveler set to perform on Sept. 5. The event is “free and open to the public and takes place two days before the Colts’ first game, a road contest” against the Broncos. The kickoff event also will “feature the Colts cheerleaders and mascot, giveaways, a beer garden and food provided by the Indianapolis Colts Grille” (INDYSTAR.com, 7/22).
