Official: Vikings have right for seat licenses

MINNEAPOLIS - The head of the authority overseeing construction of a new Minnesota Vikings stadium says she expects any fees for personal seat licenses would be in line with those charged for other new stadiums recently built in the state.

Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority chairwoman Michelle Kelm-Helgen says the legislation authorizing the new stadium gives the team clear authority to pursue the licenses.

The licenses are common in the NFL, with some teams charging many thousands of dollars. Gov. Mark Dayton criticized them earlier this week.

The Minnesota Twins charged $1,000 to $2,000 on a small number of premium seats at Target Field. Vikings vice president Lester Bagley told the authority at its meeting Friday that the team hasn't made a decision on licenses.
