Wanna go to Super Bowl 52? You'll have to buy Vikings suite season tickets

The Minneapolis delegation celebrates moments after NFL Commissioner Goodell announced that Super Bowl 52 will be played in the new Vikings stadium.
Minnesota is super pumped about the NFL awarding Super Bowl 52 to Minneapolis, but fact is very few of us will be able to afford to go to the game.

That's because to merely have the possibility of getting a crack at tickets, you'll have to buy season tickets for a suite in the new stadium, a Vikings employee told us today.

Super Bowl could bring in more than $300 million, study says

The employee's comment is confirmed by a post on the Vikings' website.

New stadium suite prices aren't listed yet, but considering high-end club seats cost $400 a pop (with a $9,500 seat license to boot for those who want season tickets), there probably aren't enough banks to rob or people to scam to come up with that sort of dough.

Speaking of money and being super pumped, check out this video (unfortunately it's un-embeddable) of how the Minneapolis Super Bowl delegation, led by U.S. Bank CEO Richard Davis, reacted when NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made the somewhat surprising announcement that Super Bowl 52 would be played in Minnesota.

Think they'd get nearly that pumped if the actual Vikings team ever won a Super Bowl?

So this is the 'peoples' stadium that we got shoved down our collective throats.

But you know it makes jobs.... like $7.50 / hr part time jobs with no benefits. 

These sports stadiums are a farce!

So relieved that the taxpayer was able to pay for half of such a luxurious stadium with suites only affordable by so few.

So marilyn carlson wanted the super bowl here to make more money for her company but doesn't want to share how much was paid to get this here, awesome. this is the same person who was/is on the board of directors of the orchestra and was perfectly content letting that org. go under. She sounds like a perfectly horrible person.

Rather see college anyway. NFL player get paid to much. Then half of them don't play hard after they get money.

Let me know when MLS moves in and Minneapolis can host MLS Cup. Far more fan friendly league not to mention REAL Football.

Guess what else kids? You'll end up footing part of the bill too after all the tax breaks and freebies the NFL will get.

I did twice...again, all depends the matchup too. This ticket isn't gonna sell like others either.

$300 - $800? I doubt you'll be lucky to find anything for under $1500 up until the game actually starts.

So random people from all over will have to buy suite tickets? That makes no sense.

This article is too trumped up...yes, if you want to guarantee a ticket you'll need to buy a suite but that's cause 50% of tickets for the superbowl are GIVEN to corporate sponsors. When the time comes, you'll be able to buy them on every ticket outlet there is...yes, the SB is expensive but you don't have to buy a $10k suite license to go to the game. That's called dramatic journalism. Pending who's in the game, you'll be able to go for between $300-800. I lived through this in Tampa and Indy and will again in Minny.

I don't care about sportsball but the revenue generated will be good for the area.

@atrupar The best is that header image on the Vike's blog page. Dayton looks confused and Zygi = Wario.

Football is all about rich people. The NFL does not give a damn about the average fan

Yup, I am so grateful that my tax dollars can go to subsidize people who have absolutely no business being subsidized. Sooo much better than say: subsidizing summer school lunches for Low Income inner city children. AMIRITE?
