EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — When the Minnesota Vikings play at TCF Bank Stadium this fall, single-game tickets will be in shorter supply.

The move from the Metrodome means a 12,000-seat loss of capacity. Vikings executive director of communications Jeff Anderson said Friday that each of the 52,000 seats at TCF Bank stadium is currently slotted for a season-ticket owner. The amount of single-game seats available will depend on the number of season-ticket renewals, usually about 90 percent from year to year.

TCF Bank Stadium has 7,000 fewer lower-level seats than the Metrodome did, so some fans were moved to the upper deck.

Ticket prices will also rise with the stadium switch.

Season-ticket owners who don't purchase seats the next two years will keep priority over first-time buyers when the new stadium opens in 2016.
