Watch Out for Ticket Scammers for the Vikings Playoffs

January 12, 2018 08:10 PM

(ABC 6 News)-- Minnesota is heading into primetime football season as the Vikings head to the playoffs starting Jan. 14, and the Super Bowl in Minneapolis coming February.

The Vikings team has achieved 13 regular season wins--the second highest total in franchise history.


The first playoff game against the New Orleans Saints is Sunday, and tickets are in high demand according to StubHub.

Cameron Papp is the Communications Manager at StubHub, and he recommends buying tickets online through a legitimate vendor. "About 70-80 percent of the sales that we do for these games are electronic tickets," Papp said. "Buying tickets off the street or purchasing them right outside the stadium, we don't recommend it. It's too risky."

To avoid reduce being scammed during the high season, the best way is go to go through a reputable vendor. The online vendors also give the option to have a printable copy of your ticket if e-tickets are not your preference.
