Since the Legacy Bricks program launched in March 2015, nearly 12,500 fans have purchased the commemorative markers that will occupy approximately 3,500 square feet on Medtronic Plaza at U.S. Bank Stadium. Because of the incredible interest, the Vikings and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority have added space for an additional 1,000 bricks before the program officially closes in the next month.
Last week, construction of the Legacy Ship, a 160-foot long ship located in the southwest corner of Medtronic Plaza and the home for the Legacy Bricks, began. Inspired by legendary Viking ships, the Legacy Ship will incorporate contemporary metals, stone, concrete and wood and will include landscaping, as well as theatrical lighting and sound. A 2,000 square-foot curved LED video board standing 55 feet tall will serve as the ship's sail, while the thousands of commemorative Legacy Bricks will occupy roughly 3,500 square feet of the ship's deck.

Along with the personally-engraved brick crafted from stone quarried in Minnesota, fans will receive a complimentary replica and an official certificate of ownership. Upon installation, brick owners will be provided a locator map to easily find their pavers when visiting U.S. Bank Stadium.
Interested fans need to act fast, as an average of 1,000 bricks have been secured each month since the program launched just a year ago.
The Vikings & the MSFA have announced the addition of a 'Legacy Ship' to Medtronic Plaza at U.S. Bank Stadium, which will transform the typical stadium marquee video board into a sculptural landmark.
