MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings and the authority overseeing the team's new stadium are ready to provide more detail about the seat licenses that will be required for many of the building's 65,000 seats.
The stadium builder's licenses, also known as personal seat licenses, are charged to people who want to buy season tickets. Officials planned Friday to describe specific pricing, perks and financing options.
The authority announced earlier that the average seat license will run $2,500. The agency said people could pay the one-time assessment interest free over three years.
Vikings ownership is using seat license proceeds to cover a chunk of the roughly $500 million private share of the $1 billion stadium. It is due to open in time for the 2016 season.
