“Parking horrible, home side not equal to visitor side”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Why on earth would you build a stadium that is a nightmare to get to and the parking is horrible? Perhaps someone thought students would attend games - which they DON'T for the most part. Plus the visitor seating and concessions are inferior to the home side. I don't get it. The food is horrible and controlled by the university who is not passionate about food at all. I am very disappointed in this stadium. Was excited to see it go up and enjoy the concept.

“Nice Concert Venue”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

U2 concert was amazing here! It's clean, it's new, it has plenty of access points (which means fewer lines to get out of the place at the end of an event).

“Win or lose...it's a great venue!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

True...this isn't Michigan Stadium (my personal favorite) but it's a significant upgrade from the Metrodome. Go early and enjoy the U of M band playing on Oak St between TCF and Mariucci Arena.

Concourses are huge and restrooms plentiful.

Please ignore the embarrassing banners for the MicronPC.com bowl that we proudly hang around the top of the stadium's upper level.

Small by Big Ten standards (capacity about 50K), "The Bank" will soon become the temporary home for the Vikings (2014, 2015, 2016?) while the dome is condemned and the new stadium is built.

“Awesome Stadium!!!”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

We have been season ticket holders for Gopher Football for a few years now and I love the stadium! (So much better than the Metrodome!) The first year the stadium was open was my last year as a member of the U of M Marching Band. It was incredible being on the field each week, and still as a spectator the stadium is great! The inner parts of the stadium (concourse, bathrooms, etc) are pretty stripped and simple but just being in the stadium, seeing the Minneapolis Skyline is what really makes the experience. It is a bit cold in the winter, but that's what you get with an open stadium in Minnesota.

“Great stadium”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

The U of M did a nice job on the stadium when they moved back to the campus. I've been to a number of games at TCF and always enjoy the comfortable seats at good prices. Concessions are pricey but that's sports.
