However, if you are an ardent fan of the Vikings you can go to watch the game live in the stadium. Apart from being an ardent fan, people who have financial constraints also consider the second option because everybody does not own an LCD. Therefore, they choose to watch the show in the stadium as they can watch the show live and enjoy cheering for their favorite players. Fans choose to buy the complete season’s passes because that costs them lesser than buying the Viking football tickets per game.
