The new Minnesota Vikings stadium design was unveiled yesterday and as you can see in this video 'fly-through' it's a pretty unique structure.


The 65,000 seater stadium (which can be increased to 73,000 for special events like the Superbowl according to the Minneapolis StarTribune) eschewed the current trend for retractable roofs for a glass structure that will allow natural light into the indoor arena.  As you would expect of a modern NFL stadium, the near-billion dollar bulding will be design to host multiple sporting and cultural events.


The Vikings are playing their last season in the current Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome before work begins on a planned 2016 opening for the new Vikings Stadium.  They will play the 2014 & 2015 seasons in the University of Minnesota's (outdoor) TCF Bank Stadium. The Vikings have pushed for a new arena for several years now and the dramatic roof collapse in December 2010 certainly helped their cause.


The Vikings also play a "home game" this year in Wembley against the Steelers.
