The new Vikings stadium will provide several unique features compared to all other NFL stadiums, including the largest transparent ethylene-tetraflouroethylene (ETFE) roof in the nation and five 95-foot high pivoting glass doors that will open to a nearly three-acre plaza and the Minneapolis downtown skyline. With the stadium’s openness, fans will experience an outdoor feel in a climate-controlled environment. Vikings fans will also be as close to the action as any NFL stadium, with seats just 41 feet from the sideline. Seven levels in the stadium, including two general admission concourses with 360-degree circulation and various views into the bowl, will be connected via escalators, elevators, stairs and a continuous ramp. Two of the largest and highest-quality HD video boards in the NFL will be located in both the east and west end zones, and over 2,000 HD flat screen televisions will be distributed throughout the stadium. Fans will enjoy wider concourses, more restrooms, increased and enhanced concessions, accessibility for fans with disabilities and ample space for pre-game events and activities. The stadium will also include a Vikings Hall of Legends and a team store. Click here
