Minnesota Vikings plan HQ development with 6,000-capacity stadium

by Matthew Campelli | 18 Mar 2016

National Football League (NFL) franchise Minnesota Vikings has put forward a proposal to build new headquarters with training facilities and a 6,000-capacity stadium.

The stadium – which can be expanded to 10,000 seats – would be used for team training, as well as providing a space for public events, athletics and high school sports such as soccer and lacrosse.

Vikings officials are additionally looking at the possibility of placing a hockey rink on the sports turf for high school matches.

An indoor practice facility and an office building will be built on the 194-acre piece of land in north-east Eagan, Minnesota as part of the plans which have been put forward to the City of Eagan and mayor Mike Maguire.

Split up into seven zones, the land would also be used to build two hotels, a large conference centre, and residential, retail and corporate space. In addition, public pedestrian and cycle trails are being planned for the plot.

Vikings purchased the land in January, and an Alternative Urban Area Review has been conducted and will be reviewed every five years. The proposed headquarters location is twice the size of Vikings’ current Winter Park HQ.

Vikings chief financial officer and executive vice-president Steve Poppen said the vision was “becoming further developed”, adding: “The further we get with this, the vision is becoming more solid.”
