In the wake of the Metrodome collapse, the NFL took care of its teams first, giving the Vikings and Giants a date and time for their postponed game: Monday night at 7:20 p.m. Eastern at Ford Field in Detroit. But the NFL addressed the fans holding tickets to today's Vikings-Giants game in Minnesota — you know, the one that won't happen, thanks to an amazing roof collapse and snow on the field — shortly afterward.
ESPN's Adam Schefter tweets that free tickets to Monday night's game are in the offing, and that they will be general admission tickets available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Refunds will be given to those holding tickets for this week's game in the Metrodome. The Vikings report that those tickets will be available at 9 a.m. Eastern (or 8 a.m. Central) at the Ford Field box office.
But those fans with tickets to the game at the Metrodome can also get a refund and a chance at an upgrade. The Vikings say that any original ticket holders will be admitted and given preferred seating at Ford Field, which is a pretty good deal for any fans that can brave the weather to make the trek from the Twin Cities to Detroit.
