The Vikings US Bank Stadium Is As Good As Advertised (Photos)

US Bank Stadium Photo TourSunday night, the Minnesota Vikings play their first regular season game at the spectacular new US Bank Stadium, in downtown Minneapolis. Not only is it the venue’s first official NFL contest, but it also takes place against the archrival Packers, in front of a national TV audience on NBC's Sunday Night Football.

Since opening in late July, the stadium has already hosted a number of non football events, as well as two Vikings preseason games. Most of which resulted in rave reviews from fans.

To date, iFolloSports.com has received two behind the scenes looks at the facility, including an exclusive hardhat tour, before the building was deemed finished.

Below are several additional original photos, gathered during our third visit to US Bank, for the Vikings preseason finale against the Los Angeles Rams.
