Stadium expert expects seat fee to be discussed


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The idea of seat licenses is a key financing mechanism for a number of sports stadiums, and some experts predict it will become part of the mix in the debate over a new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings.

Under the arrangement, fans would buy their seat from the team and pay for game tickets separately. In return, teams typically offer perks like free parking or even locker room access. Fans can also resell their seat licenses.
