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".

    Good seating available in most areas. Ample selection of a wide variety of different foods. Very pricey, though, and expect to be carded each time you want to buy a beer.  more »

    I visited the president room. It was huge and cool. I love this stadium although it was a bit hot when we visited here, but I'd still recommend this place to my friends  more »

    The stadium is amazing! But the staff was super rude, which tainted my enjoyment of the DCI event last night. My cousin was marching in one of the groups, and yet we almost missed him, because no one told us about the purse size rule. The staff who took our tickets was really rude about it.. she told us to put our purses in the car... Except our car was far away We found out later from another attendee that they had a purse check The employee never told us about that.. she didn't really understand English... Your employees could use more customer service training

    I feel like this stadium dosnt take the DCI event seriously. The line for will call took twice as long as the ticket line. We arrived 45 minutes early and still missed the first group because there was only one gate open and minimal staff to search everyone. It just shouldn't take that dang long to get in. The event started and over half of the fans were still wrapped around the building trying to get in.

    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.

Where to stay in Minneapolis

To stay in the thick of tourist action, choose a hotel in downtown Minneapolis. This area offers many independent and chain hotels, with rooms that range from budget-friendly to high-end. You can also stay close to the area by exploring mid-range hotels just a few blocks from downtown that are set in quieter neighborhoods with fewer tourists. If you have access to a car and don't mind driving to most major attractions, you can consider a good value motel or inn just outside the city.
