U.S Bank Stadium is owned and operated by the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, a local governmental unit of the State of Minnesota. While the major tenant in the stadium is the Minnesota Vikings, the building was designed to provide a wide array of events for the community and state. It will host high school and college sporting events, including baseball and soccer. The new stadium can also accommodate large trade shows and concerts as well as smaller intimate events in the stadium’s six state-of-the-art club spaces and locations throughout the building. In May of 2012, the Minnesota Legislature passed legislation authorizing the construction of a new stadium in Minneapolis, and the new stadium design was unveiled in May, 2013 by the stadium’s architect, HKS.
