Vikings Unveil Hyundai Club at U.S. Bank Stadium

Earlier this week, the Vikings and Hyundai Motor America announced a partnership for U.S. Bank Stadium that will include the Hyundai Club. Nearly complete and already sold out, the Hyundai Club will be located between the 30-yard lines on the stadium's lower level north side and will give fans an up-close look at the action with seats just 41 feet from the sideline. Shortly after the announcement, the Vikings unveiled current photos of the club as well as the views of the field that it offers.

Beginning in 2016, the Vikings and Hyundai will collaborate on a community initiative.  

Live Feed of U.S. Bank Stadium Soars as Construction Begins the Final Months

The decision to give Vikings fans continued access to the construction process of U.S. Bank Stadium is paying off. According to Lisa Kelly of EarthCam, the company that is partnering with the Vikings to capture live footage of the stadium's construction,  cameras directed towards the Vikings future home have been viewed over 10.7 million times and consistently rank in the top 25 most-watched construction cameras and top five stadium cameras from the thousands of projects that EarthCam documents. Installed in January 2014, the cameras provide fans with round-the-clock access to exterior and interior views of the building and are used to help piece together time-lapse videos of the stadium's progress that is now over 80% complete. During the final eight months of construction, the Vikings and EarthCam will move cameras into various interior spaces, including the Vikings locker room, to monitor their progress.

Vikings High-Tech Roof in Place Just Before Winter

Recently, the ETFE roof at U.S. Bank Stadium was completed en route to the building's full enclosure in time for winter. Minneapolis Star Tribune writer Rochelle Olson looked at the material that’s going to help allow the building shed snow in a quick and efficient manner.

Comparable to a kitchen cutting board Olson says, the durable and flexible material will give the building one commonality to the former Metrodome – it will be acoustically reflective. Used on athletic facilities all over the world, the 60% ETFE roof at U.S. Bank Stadium will be the largest in the country and will provide fans with an outdoor experience while staying warm and dry during the winter months.
