Seat builder licenses will raise $100 million of the Vikings’ contribution to the cost of construction for their new stadium, which will open in 2016. The seat licenses are a one-time contribution for the right to purchase seats. The Vikings, the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority and Van Wagner Sports & Entertainment held a news conference this morning at the Metrodome Square Building to address the cost of personal seat licenses. The Vikings will open a 7,500 square foot “fan experience” sales center in coming weeks for seat license sales. The Vikings’ contribution is expected to be $518 million. The average price of a license will be $2,500, and 75 percent of ticket buyers will have to pay.
