^EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings are freezing ticket prices for next season.

The cost of going to a game will remain unchanged in 2009, the first time in 11 years the team has forgone a hike for all levels of seating.

Though corporations and local TV networks have helped buy remaining tickets for several games over the last two seasons, the Vikings have a streak of 112 consecutive sellouts including preseason and playoff games. They host Atlanta on Sunday afternoon, with the ability to clinch the NFC North division title by beating the Falcons.

President Mark Wilf says the team believes the decision to freeze prices will give more fans the opportunity to come out to games.
