TCF Bank Stadium Is Ready For The Minnesota Vikings

Crews have been working hard to renovate TCF Stadium, home of the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers, into a suitable home for the Minnesota Vikings for the next two years.  There have been a lot of concerns about moving outdoors to deal with the elements, even though installation of heating coils and extra seating has been put in.  One thing people shouldn’t worry about is how great the stadium will look on game day.

Thanks to the New Minnesota Vikings Stadium website, we now have a projected aerial image of what the stadium will look like.  Here is a link to their article with the picture.

But here is that aerial preview that I’m talking about:

Personally, I’m super excited to watch the Vikings play out in the elements and this preview photo has my mouth watering for Minnesota Vikings football.  While the Vikings team is in transition with a new coaching staff and lots of new faces, the stadium is also doing the same.  With construction on the new Vikings stadium going well, it seems as though Minnesota will only spend two seasons at TCF Bank Stadium before they move into the new home.

What is funny is that U.S. Bank has been rumored as the leading candidate for naming rights to the new stadium.  That means that the Minnesota Vikings could go from TCF Bank Stadium to U.S. Bank Stadium in two years.  Hopefully, the Vikings will play well in both stadiums and help take some victories to the bank!  (poor pun intended)

What do you think?  Do you like the previewed look of the new stadium?  Discuss it in the comments!
