What the Wilfs want in the Stadium


I loved all the comments everyone posted in this article by Ted about what would be awesome to have in OUR NEW VIKINGS STADIUM.

From the bathrooms to Rosencoper tours to bronze statues at the gates are all good ideas.. but I thought (in case you missed it) you might enjoy reading what Zygi and Mark would like:



(QUOTE)

(Mr.) Wilf talked about Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, where Super Bowl XLVI was held Feb. 5, as a model for the new Vikings stadium.

"Certainly in terms of the types of amenities and the way it feels inside," he said. "I think this past Super Bowl got rave reviews in terms of the people that attended from all over the world and all over the country. I think it's the right sensibility."

However, Wilf added: "We want to have something exciting but also is going to fit the Minnesota market and be something that has a Minnesota flavor to it. That's the sensibility that we're going to shoot for, the type of features that Lucas Oil has -- big screens, technology, comfortable seating, club areas, public plazas, the whole nine yards."

Wilf said he and his brother, Vikings owner/chairman Zygi Wilf, have looked at a lot of great halls of fame for teams at NFL stadiums around the country and will try to incorporate the best features of all of them.

"We have a great history, and our No. 1 goal is to [win] a trophy to put in the middle of the hall of fame," Mark Wilf said. (/UNQUOTE)
