Vikings' sellout streak faces another challenge
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Vikings have plenty of tickets left to sell this season.
Chief marketing officer Steve LaCroix said Tuesday there are 6,500 seats available for the Dec. 18 game against New Orleans and 5,000 seats remaining for the Jan. 1 game against Chicago.
The Vikings have announced sellouts of their 64,000-seat stadium for 142 straight games, including the preseason, regular season and playoffs. The last time they had a game blacked out in the Twin Cities television market for lacking ticket sales was 14 years ago.
The Vikings fell to 2-10 after Sunday's loss to Denver.
