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".

  • I was there for an MLS game. The stadium is a fun place to watch a game but it would be better with a grass field and without the pitch markings at the half way line and in the goalmouth areas.  more »

  • Best stadium in the Big 10! No bad seats, and the vibe is crazy fun. Great food options and the tailgating starts early and often.
  • This is a very nice and well-maintained facility. It has hosted many events and the grounds crew is great at changing it from a football field to an ice rink.
  • I was there on june 3rd for the rolling stones concert. It's a great stadium. Workers were "rude", but anyway.. the stadium is beautiful.
  • This place is awesome. The best thing the University did was build this on campus stadium. Gorgeous architecture, great food, awesome sight lines. Obviously it's cold late in the season but it's Big 10 football, Tough it out.
  • Great stadium and night to watch Minnesota United FC! Easy parking to find a couple blocks away, and so nice to have an open air stadium.
