MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings say they’re just $10 million shy of a $125 million goal for selling seat licenses at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1mcyMFk ) says the team was to report Wednesday that they’ve sold 90 percent of the available “stadium builder’s licenses” for the stadium’s inaugural 2016 season. Fewer than 5,000 seat licenses remain.

The licenses are one-time fees for the right to buy a certain season-ticket seat. Licenses are valid for 30 years.

Vikings chief marketing officer Steve LaCroix says sales picked up after the team’s playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks, with the team selling 1,000 licenses in the past three weeks.

Team ownership is using seat license proceeds to cover part of its share of stadium costs.

The team also has commitments for 123 of 131 suites at the stadium.
