The Minnesota Vikings and Van Wagner Sports & Entertainment have completed the New Stadium Preview Center adjacent to the stadium’s construction site and will open the space to the public (by appointment) later this week.
Located on the fifth floor of the 1010 Metrodome Square Building (1010 South 7th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55415), the 7,500 square-foot, state-of-the-art Preview Center is designed to give Vikings fans their first look at the future game experience within the new stadium set to open in July 2016. The interactive space, the largest ever built by an NFL team, overlooks the stadium construction site and includes a custom-filmed experiential player tunnel and Vikings locker room experience, two authentic suite build-outs, a 24-seat Club seating section, 37 high-definition televisions and seven interactive kiosks. The center also contains a 100:1 scale city-scape model and a 25:1 scale detailed architectural stadium model. Most importantly, visitors will have the opportunity to see 360-degree panaromic views from 275 vantage points within the stadium.
“We believe the new stadium will provide the premier game-day experience in the NFL, and this Preview Center will help bring that into focus for Vikings fans,” said Vikings Vice President of Sales and Marketing & Chief Marketing Officer Steve LaCroix. “We look forward to welcoming fans to this interactive space throughout the next two and a half years before we open the new home for Vikings football in 2016.”
The Vikings are currently contacting Season Ticket Members and arranging appointments to tour the Preview Center.
