VIKINGS STADIUM

MINNEAPOLIS, MN

For more than 45 years the Vikings have been a part of the Minnesota sports scene playing first at Metropolitan Stadium and now at the Metrodome. Throughout their history the Vikings have never had a stadium of their own, sharing both stadiums with baseball's Minnesota Twins (until 2010 when Target Field opened). For over a decade the Vikings tried to secure support from the State of Minnesota to fund the construction of a new stadium. On March 1, 2012 the Vikings were successful as Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton announced that a $975 million stadium would be built on the site of the Metrodome. The Vikings will contribute $477 million, the City of Minneapolis $150 million and the State of Minnesota $348 million towards the project.

A new chapter will start in the history of the Vikings franchise when the team opens there new stadium in 2016. To be constructed on the site of the Metrodome, construction will begin immediately following the 2013 season as the Vikings will temporarily share TCF Bank Stadium with the Minnesota Golden Gophers during the 2014 and 2015 seasons. The 65,000 seat stadium will be unlike any other in the NFL. Enclosed, the stadium will feature the largest transparent roof in the world allowing natural light to filter into the stadium providing an outdoor like setting but with a climate controlled environment. It will have five 95 foot tall retractable doors on the west side allowing view towards the Minneapolis skyline. The majority of the seating will be on both sides of the gridiron, with the lower deck surrounding the field, expandable to seat 75,000 for the Super Bowl. It will have many amenities including 150 luxury suites, 7,500 club seats and a Vikings Hall of Fame. Two 50' x 120' HD video/scoreboards will be located at both endzones. Not only will it host football, but the Vikings Stadium will be the most versatile in the NFL as it will host baseball, basketball, motocross, concerts and more. It is scheduled to host Super Bowl LII on February 4, 2018.
