Vikings site coming together in Eagan; officials plan to make it a ‘destination’
Minnesota Vikings representatives provided an update to its future home in Eagan on Wednesday.
More than 100 construction workers were beginning to put the walls and roof on the Twin Cities Orthopedic Performance Center as the last piece of structured steel was installed a week ago.
Everything is on track to open in about 10 months.
“Our first goal is to make this a world class destination,” said Mark Wilf, owner and president. “We’re excited about this facility and we think it’s going to give our players the best environment to succeed.”
But, it won’t be just Viking jerseys running around the 6,000 seat stadium.
The facility is also expected to hold high school athletic events and youth football camps.
