Minnesota hosting 2018 Super Bowl

Great news for my second home of Minneapolis today as the NFL has decided their brand new stadium at the site of the old Metrodome will host the 2018 Super Bowl. It’s great to see the NFL expand to new cities and venues for their big spectacle and Minneapolis will definitely be a standout one in the heart of winter and with their gorgeous new stadium providing cinematic views of the skyline, as seen in the fly-through video above.

I covered more about the HKS Architects-designed stadium when they revealed the renderings last year here. The stadium will open for the 2016 season with the Vikings calling University of Minnesota’s outdoor TCF Bank Stadium a temporary home these next two seasons.
