TCF Bank Stadium, Minneapolis

4.4
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 venue with good seats everywhere. If it is chilly make sure that you try and get on the north side where the sun hits.  more »
  • We visited here in November and the stadium is very nice, especially for a college stadium. There were plenty of amenities and the seating was fairly comfortable.  more »
  • My family and I have seen many MNUFC soccer games in the past year and this is an amazing place to go watch soccer! The food is a bit pricey and parking is not easy so we take the light rail, we go on...  more »

For the Season ticket holders that received an up grade to the outdoor club, after entering the gates with your ticket go to Guest Services/police shared service area located opposite of section 144 seating. 4 Stars? When the vikings played at TCF, the food and drinks were free.
  • I've gone here for the MN United Football Club games and there's not a bad seat in the house. The food varieties are OK and the craft beer selection adequate but severely overly priced. I had also been here for the U2: 360 tour, and it was probably the best U2 show that I've seen in my life. The venue was perfect for it, much better than the crappy reflection chamber that is the US Bank Stadium.
  • I like how low the seats are. Nice workers ok food and it’s a nice stadium over all. I went three Minnesota United home games here and not once did a have a problem. I wish that the club could call this stadium their permanent home.
  • Stadium was nice, stadium seating, so even if wanted to sit when other stand you could still see ,with the help from big video screen too. there were a variety of vendors and Univ of Minnesota hall of fame was inside the stadium too.
  • Attended in mid-September on a partly cloudy day, and enjoyed it immensely. I could see how the North side would get super hot on a fully sunny day but it was nice on my visit. The molded plastic seats were comfortable enough, and visibilty of the field was uniformly good (end zone views are still end zone views, of course, but the seats are mostly close to the field). Concessions were adequate. Parking nearby is pretty expensive ($25 for a nearby lot).
