Vikings Feeling "Favre Effect" in Ticket, Jersey Sales

By  | 

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Vikings have sold more than 3,000
season tickets since news broke that Brett Favre was coming to
Minnesota. That's in approximately a 24-hour span.

Chief marketing officer Steve LaCroix says the team has also sold about 10,000 single-game tickets during that time as fans continue to clamor over the arrival of the veteran quarterback.

Seats for the game against Green Bay on Oct. 5 are only available through a season ticket. There are roughly 7,000 season tickets remaining. The Vikings had to race to beat the blackout deadline for several games last season.

Merchandise is also moving. LaCroix said several hundred pre-orders for Favre jerseys were placed online Tuesday. The purple No. 4s were to begin showing up in stores Wednesday.
