U.S. BANK STADIUM

Inside US Bank Stadium, future home of the Minnesota Vikings

MINNEAPOLIS, MN

For more than 45 years the Vikings have been a part of the Minnesota sports scene playing first at Metropolitan Stadium and 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 new stadium would be built on the site of the Metrodome. Cost of the stadium is currently at $1.08 billion with contributions of $577 from the Vikings, $150 million from the City of Minneapolis $150 million and $348 million from the State of Minnesota. The naming rights were sold to U.S. Bank in June 2015. Terms of the deal are undisclosed.

A new chapter will start in the history of the Vikings franchise when the team opens US Bank Stadium in 2016. To be constructed on the site of the Metrodome, construction began immediately following the 2013 season as the Vikings temporarily share TCF Bank Stadium with the Minnesota Golden Gophers during the 2014 and 2015 seasons. The 65,400 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 US Bank 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 in February 2018 and the 2019 Men's NCAA Basketball Final Four.
