Vikings buy 500 Lynx playoff tickets for fans
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Vikings are doing their best to help bring a championship to Minnesota any way they can.
The struggling football team has purchased 500 Lynx tickets for Game 1 of the Western Conference finals against Phoenix on Thursday night. The upper level tickets will be available for free to fans who call the Lynx ticket office on Tuesday morning.
The Twins did the same for the Lynx with their opening round Game 1 victory over Seattle. The Lynx swept the Storm and are trying for their third straight appearance in the WNBA finals.
Fans can call the Lynx ticket office at 612-673-8400 starting at 8 a.m. local time to redeem their tickets. Each fan can claim two tickets.
