Vikings unveil plans for new fixed-roof stadium

Posted by Mike Florio on May 14, 2013, 1:16 AM EDT

It’ll open in 2016, after the Vikings spend two years playing home games outdoors. The wait could end up being worth it.

On Monday night, the team unveiled a proposed design for the new stadium, to be built partially on the site of the Metrodome.

“Tonight’s unveiling showcases a bold, iconic design delivered by HKS,” Vikings owner/president Mark Wilf said in a statement release be the team. “Not only is this facility unique to Minnesota, but the stadium will also provide Vikings fans with the best game-day experience in the NFL, which has always been our goal.”

The roof won’t be retractable, but it will appear to be that way.

“Vikings fans will be closer to the action than any stadium in the country,” Vikings owner/chairman Zygi Wilf said. “The combination of operable end walls with a clear roof and large windows throughout the facility will give fans the opportunity to experience the best of both worlds: an outdoor feel with protection from the elements.”

The new building will hold 65,000 fans, and it undoubtedly will host a Super Bowl at some point as part of the loose quid pro quo that arises from stadiums wholly or partially funded by taxpayer dollars.

It works for me. It will probably look better in real life, but it's not like it's bad at all. I'm just glad they're staying in Minnesota.

I think it looks cool, but the images of Adrian Peterson on the building itself look a little strange to me for some reason.  Like, no need to be there, kind of strange.

I dont disagree that images of Adrian Peterson should be on full display throughout the stadium.  I just think the pictures of him on these renderings look extremely out of place and weird.

Haha sorry. I'm agreeing with you. It looks like it's supposed to be a Church for AP with all the pics of him is what I'm saying haha.
