(Minneapolis) The Minnesota Vikings will no longer sell tickets for their last four home games this season.
The organization has announced that it will no longer attempt to accommodate more than 250 spectators this season at US Bank Stadium, the limit currently allowed for any indoor gathering in the state of Minnesota.
The Vikings had been discussing since the start of the season with stadium managers, state officials and municipal officials to find solutions to accommodate more spectators in a safe manner. Rising coronavirus cases and hospitalizations in Minnesota this fall, however, derailed the talks.
Until now, the Vikings had only invited family members of players and staff to the stadium for their matches.
The Vikings are 1-3 at home this season. Over the past four years, they’ve compiled a 23-9 record at US Bank Stadium, tied for the National Association top in that time.
