Kelm-Helgen cut in line for tickets at Vikings stadium

Michele Kelm-Helgen, former chair of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, purchased a group of tickets in an exclusive part of U.S. Bank stadium before the public has access to the sale.

Rochelle Olson of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

In response to a data request from the Star Tribune, Kelm-Helgen said that she, her friends and family occupy seats 20-27 in rows 1 and 2 in the Medtronic Club, marketed as “the most exclusive and upscale” space providing the “ultimate football viewing experience.” Another friend holds seats 20-23 in row 3. The seats are on the 50-yard line.

In her role, Kelm-Helgen oversaw the sale of Stadium Builder’s Licenses at U.S. Bank Stadium, which helped finance the Vikings portion of the $1.1 billion building. Most fans had to buy seat licenses in order to purchase season tickets. Through a sales agent, the MSFA sold seat licenses in 17 sections with the most desirable locations being marketed first to fans who occupied similar seats in the Metrodome.
