Up to 12,000 of the Legacy Bricks will line a portion of the nearly three-acre plaza located on the west side of the New Vikings Stadium when it opens in July 2016. There are three options of brick sizes that fans can choose, including one that has the Vikings Norseman logo on it. For more information on the Legacy Bricks program click here.
