Vikings to enhance fan experience with new mobile app

When U.S. Bank Stadium opens, it will feature new parking, new entrances and new food. Luckily for fans, there’s an app for that.

Announced earlier this week, the Vikings have partnered with VenueNext to launch a new mobile app designed to enhance the game day experience. Set to be unveiled prior to the 2016 NFL Draft, the app will serve as the mobile hub for fans on Sundays, as well as the primary location to find mobile coverage of the team.

Starting in the driveway, fans will be able to use the app to help identify parking, entry points and step-by-step directions to their seats or points of interest throughout the building. In addition, fans will receive robust video content of game footage directly to their mobile app.

Ensuring fans can utilize the team's mobile app in U.S. Bank Stadium will be 1,300 Wi-Fi access points spread throughout the facility.
