The Minnesota Vikings joined the national Football League in 1960 as an expansion team. The name is partly meant to reflect Minnesota's place as a center of Scandinavian American culture. Throughout the Vikings' history they have had one of the highest winning percentages in the NFL. They are also one of only five teams to win 15 games during the regular season. The Vikings won one NFL Championship game in 1969 before merging with the American Football League in 1970. Since then the Vikings have made it to the playoffs 24 times. The team has reached the Super Bowl on four occasions unfortunately losing all four times. After a successful 2009 season the Vikings struggled in 2010. However with the help of new head coach Leslie Frazier the Vikings look forward to an outstanding 2011 season. Get your Minnesota Viking tickets today! Go Vikings!
