MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Vikings are warning fans to watch out for counterfeit tickets online and outside the stadium, ahead of Sunday's big game against Green Bay.
"This is the most expensive ticket, and its the fewest tickets I've ever seen, the week before any Vikings game," said Michael Nowakowski with Ticket King.
The Vikings say because of the team's ticket-scanning process, a fan who buys a counterfeit ticket might not be able to enter the Metrodome and could be subject to investigation.
Fans caught in the stadium with a counterfeit ticket will be ejected and could be arrested.
The Vikings say counterfeit tickets are sold over the Internet and by ticket-sellers near the stadium on game day. The Vikings remind fans that the only authorized outlets for Vikings football tickets are the Vikings Ticket Office, Ticketmaster and the NFL TicketExchange.
The game's popularity has been growing, with a playoff spot on the line for the Vikings and Adrian Peterson on the verge of breaking a record; and all of it coming in the regular season finale against the rival Packers.
"I think our least expensive ticket right now is $275 a ticket," Nowakowski said
