2018 marks the first year that the Vikings will be holding their training camp in the Twin Cities metro area at the new and amazing Twin Cities Orthopedic Center in Eagan. I had the amazing opportunity to visit TCO on Saturday during a youth football camp for Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph. While the center is still very much a work in progress (and reportedly will be for the next decade as the land surrounding the main buildings is developed into what will be a small city in and of itself thanks to the owners of the Vikings, the Wilf family, and their day jobs as developers/builders on the east coast. Don’t get me wrong, the main buildings and practice facilities are finished and ready to go, it’s just the land surrounding those facilities that have cranes and workers building a small city that while technically part of Eagan, should be re-named SKOLville, if you ask me.
Either way, training camp is almost here and because of TCO’s proximity to millions of people (unlike Mankato), you’ll have to purchase tickets for reserved seating while the Vikings practice this year. The good news is that those tickets are for sale and that general admission is still free!
According to Vikings.com:

Please note that you must pre-purchase parking passes when you reserve your tickets. No on-site parking passes will be sold at Verizon Vikings Training Camp.
Verizon Vikings Training Camp is a mobile only ticketing event. Printed tickets will not be accepted at the gate. If you have any questions about using the Vikings Mobile Ticketing App, please contact the Vikings Ticket Office at (612) 338-4537.
