Vikings Arrive At Candlestick Park For Preseason Debut

Posted by Mike Wobschall on August 10, 2012 – 4:45 pm

The Vikings traveling contingent has made the short trek from the team hotel to Candlestick Park for tonight’s preseason debut against the San Francisco 49ers and players have begun hitting the field for their warmups. We’re currently under sunny skies with a temperature of 56 degrees and the winds howling at 18 mph.

Tonight marks the first preseason game for both the Vikings and 49ers, and it marks the 7th time the teams have met in the preseason, with the last coming in 2010. The last time San Francisco played a game here at Candlestick they were hosting the NFC Championship Game last January, a game in which they lost to the NY Giants.

Several representatives from the Vikings organization visited some of the 49ers facilities, which are located directly next to the site of the team’s new stadium, which is being constructed right now. We’ll have a report and pictures from that visit posted here on the vikings.com Blog shortly.

Remember to stay tuned to vikings.com tonight because we’re you’re best place for preseason coverage of the Vikings. We’ll host a live chat on the website during the game, we’ll stream press conferences after the game, and I’ll check in following the game with a recap of the night and plenty of reaction from players and coaches.

Also, for those of you not in Minnesota who wish to watch tonight’s game, go to the vikings.com home page and check out Preseason Live, a subscription-based program that you can utilize to watch every Vikings preseason game (charge of just $20).

That’s it for now, but we’ll be checking in with you periodically before tonight’s game to keep you up-to-date on the action.
