More News on Our Soon to be Astonishing New Stadium

Possible Design of New Vikings Stadium from HKS Inc.

Is it still sinking in for you? We're going to get a new billion dollar stadium. You probably got over it a while ago but now me. Still absolutely stoked!

Here we go.

Hearing from fans. The architect for the new Vikings stadium is heading out of state twice in the next month to get good perception from Minnesotans on what they want to see in the design. It feels nice knowing we have a say in which could be the best football stadium in history.

Meeting with public in Rochester and Duluth. HKS Inc., the stadium architect, and representatives of the Vikings and Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority plan to meet with the public in Rochester and Duluth in November. In Rochester it’s scheduled for 5:30 to 7 pm. Nov. 13 at the Doubletree Hotel, 150 South Broadway. A similar meeting will be held in Duluth Nov. 27, but where and when are still undecided.

Lead Structural Engineer Chosen. Last Friday the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority announced that Thornton Tomasetti will be the lead structural engineer for the new Minnesota Vikings stadium. Thornton Tomasetti has worked on many stadium and arena projects around the country, but has done none in Minnesota recently.

So that's the latest happening with the new Vikings stadium. Last year at the Metrodome and we might have a playoff team to go with it. Wouldn't want our last year there to be bad one.
