Watch The Implosion Of Gage Hall In Mankato Live This Saturday

Posted Jun 27, 2013

The Vikings have called Minnesota State University, Mankato home for training camp for the last 47 years, but when the club makes the trek south this July, they will be staying in a new dorm due to Gage Hall being imploded this Saturday.

Weather-permitting, fans will be able to watch the implosion live on both and the Vikings Mobile and iPad Apps.  The implosion is slated to occur at 9:30 AM CT this Saturday, June 29.

This year the team will slide over to Julia Sears Hall, which housed the team prior to the 2010 season due to construction at Gage. 

To watch the implosion this weekend, visit this page on or the homepage of the Vikings Mobile / iPad Apps.

In the meantime, take a look back at this "Beyond The Gridiron" segment from last August which shows a brief recap of 2012 training camp but then transitions into a piece on Gage Camp that features the likes of Alan Page and Bud Grant giving their thoughts on Gage Hall. The Gage Hall part starts at around the 3:10 mark if you'd wish to fast-forward to that part.
