Gear up for a New Viking Age

By Matt Henry

Take a virtual tour of U.S. Bank Stadium below (and see more Google 360 tours):

Standing in the former location of the Metrodome, U.S. Bank Stadium’s glass, angular design is a striking change from the white, rounded features of the Minnesota Vikings’ former home. The state-of-the-art stadium features a translucent roof and wall panels that lets in natural light while remaining fully enclosed. More than 66,000 seats are available for games, which can be expanded up to 72,000 seats for special events.

Although the Vikings are the focus, U.S. Bank Stadium is a destination for more than just football games. Big events such as Monster Jam, concerts by the likes of Beyonce and Jay-Z and Taylor Swift, and international soccer matches are among the events that draw big crowds to the area's biggest stadium.

The stadium is also a hub for some of the largest sporting events in the country, including the X Games, 2018 Super Bowl and 2019 NCAA Final Four.

In addition to the new stadium, the Vikings also have a new training facility in Eagan called the TCO Performance Center. Fans can reserve tickets to watch practices there, or visit the on-site Vikings Museum that's open year-round.
