Tonight, I hop on a plane headed for the Twin Cities, and it’ll be my first trip to Minnesota in nearly 14 years. In that time, plenty has changed — I won’t be touring the Metrodome, visiting the Mall of America, or checking out my dad’s family home. Instead, I’ll be representing Vikings Territory at U.S. Bank Stadium and Vikings training camp as part of U.S. Bank’s Biggest Fan Sweepstakes.
On Wednesday, I’ll join 40 lucky Vikings fan for the opportunity of a lifetime. We’ll start the day at U.S. Bank Stadium, where we’ll take a hard hat tour of the Vikings’ new home before visiting the stadium preview center. Later in the day, we’ll take a bus up to Mankato and spend the afternoon with a sideline view of training camp practices.
In working with U.S. Bank and the Vikings Biggest Fan event, Vikings Territory will be able to bring you an inside look at the new stadium and some extra coverage from training camp in Mankato.
Here’s the fun part — we want everyone to experience this exciting day of activities.
