MINNEAPOLIS (KTTC-DT/AP) -- Ticket-holders for the Bears-Vikings game will be seated at TCF Bank Stadium on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Vikings announced Thursday the policies for Monday night's game, which is being moved from the damaged Metrodome to the University of Minnesota. The dome's capacity is 64,000 seats, and TCF Bank Stadium holds 50,000.

Ticket-holders for the lower level at the Metrodome will get access to the lower level at TCF Bank Stadium until seats fill up. The gates will open at 5 p.m. with lines forming at 4 p.m. Ticket-holders for the upper level at the Metrodome will only have access to the upper level at TCF Bank Stadium. Gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

Per university policy, no alcohol will be served and no outside food or beverages will be allowed.
