We’re now just 2 days away from the first outdoor Vikings game in 29 years, a historic event that will be seen across the country on ESPN’s Monday Night Football.
Given this, we’d like to make fans aware of the following points:
1) We are very certain based on ticket returns and initial surveys that all ticket holders intent on going to the game Monday night WILL get in to the stadium. We do not expect any ticket holders to be turned away.
2) We are aware of the need to create an ease of entry for all of our fans attending the game. Typically there are 60 points of entry for a University of Minnesota football game. On Monday night, there will be 84 points of entry, and we are confident this will greatly streamline the process.
3) Thanks to our terrific partnerships, we have various amenities for fans that will make the experience warmer and even more enjoyable. We will be utilizing Williams Arena to serve as a pre-game hospitality space beginning Monday afternoon. ESPN and NFL Network will be running on the screens and concessions will be open. Outside of the gates at TCF Bank Stadium, Caribou Coffee will be passing out coffee, while Mall of America will be distributing disposable hand warmers to all fans entering the stadium.
We’ve included a list of frequently asked questions to provide you with the most information in order to make the transition to TCF Bank Stadium as seamless as possible. We hope to see you on Monday night as we celebrate our 50th season in a very special and memorable fashion.
