MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KMSP) - The Vikings announced Wednesday, a new bar area for people with and without tickets to the game, along with a family friendly area outside U.S. Bank Stadium.
The Delta Vikings Village will feature “The Vikings Longhouse” all season long, Vikings Vice President of Marketing and Fan Engagement Dave Hulskotter calls it an extension of all the different hospitality spaces within U.S. Bank Stadium on non-Vikings game days. Longhouse is expected to hold 800 people.
Accoring to Hulskotter, the Longhouse will open two-and-a-half hours before home games and stay open until approximately two hours after games. Outside of the Longhouse there will be a stage for live music, a beer garden and interactive displays near the U.S. Bank Stadium light rail station.
The Commons area will host family friendly game day activities in an alcohol free area between Fourth and Fifth Streets and Portland and Park Avenues.
“The Commons is an area, that from the very beginning, we wanted to designate as a place to engage families and children, keep it kind of a youth-oriented area,” Hulskotter said.
Both areas will be open on Sunday for the Vikings preseason game against the San Diego Chargers.
