    How are the vikings going to ever get a new stadium. There are not enough vikings fans to fill one, unless they build a stadium with about 40,000 seats. And what about ticket prices? Even though you are in the upper deck, I think $25 for row 23 in the upper deck is a steal for the metrodome. You actually get seats and its climate controlled.
    At lambone, the cheapest ticket is $59 and you sit on a hard bleacher. If it rains, sleets, snows, too bad. Not exactly the best bargain in the world but packer fans pay 2-4 times face value just to sit in these hard seats.
    What can a team do to fill a stadium? Minneapolis is a pretty big city and cant sell out the dome now, how can a little city like green bay do it?

    Love to hear some thoughts.
    Here's a thought: Do your fucking research... and get a GED.
    Bwahahahahaha!

    That's funny as fuck!

    Everything he is bashing the Dome and the fans for....people easily prove wrong.

    And this guy is pimping tickets in the Tix & Such forum?

    There is no way your preseason games come even close to selling out, but, I was unaware that your regular season games sell out.

    Do you think if a new stadium was built, with an actual parking lot to tailgate, that more fans would be interested?
    The pre-season games sold out, they were on local TV.


    And there are tailgate lots near the Dome (started 2 seasons ago), but not nearly enough, as it is a downtown stadium.

    =Z=
    The tailgate lots are fantastic with great location.
    We had 2 or 3 close calls last season with sellouts. Fine by me though - keeps ticket prices down and affordable.

    Does anyone know what the status is on the new stadium?
    All I could find is a bunch of old articles and
    articles asking people to tweet to help push for the new stadium.

    Until the economy picks up, the state (governor and legislators) won't touch a new stadium, regardless of the value it would bring to Minnesota.
    That's pretty much it.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    The big reason the vikings brought in favre was to get a new stadium. Do some research ultravikingfan and disprove that notion.

    You're a dolt.
    Really.
    That notion was discussed here back in freaking May and shown to be false.

    I'm glad Wilf is first showing his commitment to building a winning team, by putting out $$$, which Red never did.
    Second, hasn't been threatening moves or other non productive actions that will only create public distrust.
    Third, is going to wait till the Vikings earn it by becoming a premier team that will sell out the current stadium and bring national recognition, before launching major positive campaign.

    In other words, Zygi Wilf is doing the exact opposite of Billy Joe "Red" McCombs, which is the difference between a real estate developer and a used car salesman.
    One knows the long term investment return philosophy and how to work with government; the other is all about the mark-up and quick sales.

    Granted, Red did pretty good buying the successful Vikes for $250 mill in 1998 and after 7 years of running them into the ground was still able to sell them for $600 mill in 2005.

    If the Vikes can win a SB, get a new stadium, and continue to perform at a high level, in another 4 years the Vikes could be in the $billion+ club.
    I also think Wilf is a dedicated owner that enjoys the game and won't be looking to sell afterwards.
