The NFL has announced that the Giants-Vikings game will take place from Ford Field in Detroit on Monday at 6:20 p.m. CST due to the Metrodome / Mall of America Field’s roof collapsing early on Sunday morning. More details will be posted soon…
Statement from Greg Aiello, NFL Senior Vice President of Public Relations:
We were notified this morning by the Metrodome / Mall of America Field authorities that the dome will not be available for the Giants-Vikings game on Monday or Tuesday. We are currently exploring alternatives to play the game Monday night at the University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium or another domed NFL stadium. We will continue to provide information as it becomes available.
Stay with vikings.com for more info as it becomes available.
Update: Here is another statement from Aiello:
The Vikings and University of Minnesota have worked cooperatively and diligently on the re-location of the Giants-Vikings game. The university, however, has informed the Vikings that unfortuately its stadium was shut down for winter and would take several days to prepare for an NFL game. We are continuing to explore options at other NFL domed stadiums to play the game Monday night.
