TCF Bank Stadium is an outdoor stadium on the campus of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States. Opened in 2009, it is the home field of the Minnesota Golden Gophers of the Big Ten Conference. It was also the temporary home of the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League for the 2014 and 2015 seasons during the construction of U.S. Bank Stadium. The 52,525-seat "horseshoe" style stadium cost $303.3 million to build and is designed to support future expansion to seat up to 80,000.It is the first new Big Ten football stadium constructed since Memorial Stadium at Indiana University opened in 1960. TCF Bank Stadium also boasts the largest home locker room in college or professional football and one of the largest video boards in the nation. Super Bowl winning coach and former quarterback for the Golden Gophers Tony Dungy called the stadium "unbelievable" and Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter said that the on-campus facility "will give the University of Minnesota a chance to compete not only in the Big Ten but nationally for some of the best athletes".

  • Nice game , I joined. Worthwhile to come earlier to the game to enjoy the atmosphere, tail riding or just looking for interesting people. 
  • Easy to get to, not a bad seat in the place, PA and video offer a good experience to go along with the game. 
  • TCF Stadium is beautiful. Good seats anywhere. Serves alcohol too. Great college football experience. Parking can cost 30-40.00 relatively close to the stadium. Get there early cuz you have to go thro...  read more »
  • Awesome stadium concert venue. Beyoncé’s concert went without a hitch, managed extremely professionally. When stadium is filled to capacity though, parking and transit in and out of the area is a bit difficult and frustrating.
  • Great event. In my opinion the greatest place to see university football. So loud and the crowd creates such excitement. Super passionate fans but can get a bit rowdy at times.
  • $220-plus million dollars will buy a beautiful facility, but one questions the value of adding a fifth major sports stadium to a metropolitan area like the Twin Cities. Subsidizing the effort with state funds and student fees seems remarkably wasteful, and college athletics have been shown to detract funds (not add funds) to universities. The investment would have been better spent elsewhere, like the scrapped Northside Center that had been planned in the mid-aughts. Generally it seems wise to keep public money out of sports. Tax dollars and student fees are better spent elsewhere.
  • Awesome sports venue for the U of M. Have seen football and hockey here, great sightlines. You almost feel like you are on the field.
  • Great looking stadium. Spacious concourse with plenty of vending and restrooms. Good seats have nice cushions too!
