The Vikings saw their start as an expansion team, joining the NFL in 1960. Vikings
tickets gave fans their first chance to see the team when they took the field in
the 1961 season. This marked the introduction of a team that would go on to enjoy one of
the most impressive winning percentages in the NFL. Being one of only six other
teams to win at least 15 of their regular season games, the Vikings have also won an
NFL championship, and made it to the playoffs no less than 24 times, a record that sits
as third in the League. Over the years, Vikings tickets have allowed fans the chance to
cheer from some of the best teams ever to play the sport, yet despite such
accomplishments and with four appearances to boast of, the team has yet to win a
The Vikings enjoy a Rivalry with the Green Bay Packers that dates back to the team's
first season in 1961. Vikings tickets enjoy increased demand when the team is facing
the Packers, as the rivalry is well known for being so close, not just in all time series
wins, but with each individual game. Vikings tickets that give fans a chance to lend
their support during one of the most intense rivalries within the NFL enjoy a spike in
sales, as residents of the Twin Ports area that serves as the stage for such a rivalry are
eager for the chance to spectate and cheer their team to victory.
First opening in 1982, the Metrodone as it is known to fans and residents of the area
hosts the Vikings in downtown Minneapolis. A slightly dated
facility, issues that have long been a problem with its roof have been the chief
motivation for the construction of its replacement, due to open in 2016.
The new stadium will give fans with Vikings tickets a chance to enjoy a more modern facility. With a
seating capacity of just over 64,000, the Metrodome is the destination of Vikings ticket holders when they wish to enjoy a home game as well as a chance to
see the team they love. Despite a severe winter storm that dumped more than
seventeen inches of snow onto the Metrodome roof in December of 2010, a situation
that resulted in its collapse two days later, the facility is still open for business.
Joseph Juranitch serves as the team's mascot, Ragnar. Since he joined the team in
1994 he has loudly claimed to be the most widely recognized mascot, not just in the
NFL, but in the world. An individual with a number of eccentric distinctions, among
them a world record for the shortest time shaving a beard by using an axe, his style and
antics remain popular with fans and holders of Vikings tickets alike. Ragnar leads fans
of the team in their efforts to show their support, energizing a fan base that is quite
lively. Sales of Vikings tickets remain successful as the city and the surrounding region
are fond of turning out in person to root for the team.
12-4-12: At 6-6, the Vikings have a small chance to get into the playoffs but it will take almost a perfect record from here on out. Two straight losses against division foes didn’t help their cause but they have a chance to pick up the pieces this week when they host the Chicago Bears. Superstar RB Adrien Peterson is having a fantastic year, leading the NFL in rushing yards with over 1400. With four games remaining we very well could end up with over 2000 yards on the year. He also has 8 touchdowns.
