  • I love this stadium. It's new and has great views from the mezzanine, spacious bathrooms, great food and beer. It's like a mini NFL stadium. My out of state friends love it too.

  • This stadium is alive during the Gopher football season. Parking sucks unless you're in the 4th st. Ramp, but it's down town so what do you expect. Everything is pretty new and in good condition. There's not really a bad seat in the stadium. The home seats in the winter can get a little cold so if you're choosing where to sit you'll want to sit on the away side come November. Very excited and enthusiastic college crowd. They now serve beer too even though it's a college stadium!
  • Excellent college football stadium. The field runs East to West. The main stands are on the North and the South. The South stands - facing North - are closer to the entrance and the Gophers team is on that side. The visiting team is on the North side. The South stands are never in the Sun. The North stands are in the Sun until late afternoon in November. In the early fall it might be hot in the North stands. In November you might want the warmth of the Sun in the North stands.
  • Nice stadium with all services and very food view of the pitch. The big issue is that the main stand are always in the shades of the skybox structure, and with Minneapolis weather it means those places are really cold. On three other hand, seats on front of the skyboxes are sunny. I found incredible they did not consider to have the skyboxes on the other side and have the sun to shine on all the stadium. Watching Minnesota vs Iowa was real fun though.
  • Beautiful stadium, just wish they didn't have the no purse rule. That was very frustrating.
  • Outdoor football stadium with a good view of the skyline. Sit on the north side of the stadium to stay warm in the sun during chilly autumn games.
