Vikings to have nationally televised preseason game

With the preseason looming just around the corner, NFL fans are gearing up for the return of football action. In less than two months, the excitement kicks off with each team embarking on its preseason journey, offering a glimpse into the upcoming season’s prospects.

For most NFL teams, the preseason consists of three games, providing a platform for players to showcase their skills and coaches to fine-tune their strategies. However, for the fortunate few selected for the prestigious Hall of Fame game, an extra opportunity awaits, adding a fourth game to their preseason itinerary.


Recently, the Minnesota Vikings unveiled their preseason schedule, setting the stage for their upcoming gridiron battles. While the broadcast networks for these games are yet to be announced, fans can expect a diverse array of coverage options to catch their favorite team in action.

One notable highlight for Vikings enthusiasts is the announcement that the NFL Network will air a total of 21 preseason games, offering an extensive coverage lineup for football aficionados. Among these televised matchups is the Vikings’ opening preseason clash against the Las Vegas Raiders, scheduled for Saturday, August 10th, at 4 p.m. ET. Notably, local viewers can also tune in to catch all the preseason excitement, as each game will be broadcasted locally.

As the preseason progresses, the Vikings will hit the road for their final two preseason outings, with local television coverage ensuring that fans don’t miss a moment of the action. With anticipation building and rosters taking shape, the preseason serves as a crucial period for teams to evaluate talent, refine strategies, and set the stage for the thrilling battles ahead in the regular season.
