It’s the hottest ticket in town as the Vikings take on the Packers at U-S Bank Stadium Sunday.
But the Minnesota Better Business Bureau’s (BBB’s) Dan Hendrickson says make sure the tickets you buy aren’t hot–or fake. He says the Vikings have notified they’re not selling tickets this year on hard ticket stock, “so if you see someone outside the stadium selling tickets on hard ticket stock, you know that ticket is fake and you want to steer clear as quickly as possible.” Hendrickson says only tickets purchased through the Vikings ticket office, Ticketmaster and the NFL TicketExchange are guaranteed to be valid.
On their website, the Vikings offer these additional tips:
- Always check with the Vikings Ticket Office or the ticket booths to see if tickets are available.
- The Vikings have two types of authorized tickets: accessible through the Vikings Mobile App or printed (8 ½ x 11) PDF tickets.
- If you are buying tickets on the street, scrutinize them closely for inaccuracies or alterations. Cross-check the seat assignment and prices with a stadium map found on the Vikings Mobile App.
- Ask the person who is selling tickets on the street if you could take a picture of him/her with their valid ID before the transaction. If they refuse, move on.
