The Connected Home is looking froward to the opening of the new US Bank Stadium in Downtown Minneapolis. While most of our customers will be seeing the stadium from the comfort of their homes, we hope they all get a chance to visit and enjoy the new stadium in person sometime in the near future.
The newly completed, not quite open US Bank Stadium will be featured in tens of thousands of hours of broadcast and Cable TV over the coming decades.
While tens of thousands will be sure to visit during this weeks open house, non will be allowed to walk on the stadiums artificial turf. Apparently that would be just too much for it to withstand.
But you can get some great insights into the look and feel of the new stadium from a recent twincities.com posting with many very nice photos:

And that entertainment will reach beyond the Vikings...
ESPN's X Games will be held in Minneapolis in 2017 and 2018, with many of the events being held in the Minnesota Vikings' glittering new stadium, the network announced Wednesday.
In fact the stadium is destined to hold many more events that that...
If you think U.S. Bank Stadium is only for football, think again.
So whether you are a die hard Vikings Fan, or are into any number of other sport and entertainment niches, the New US Bank Stadium offers a sparkling new venue. But you needn't pay a dime for the pricey games that will be played there by their marquee tenant. You can watch them all from the comfort of your home. And if you used The Connected Home to assist you in setting up your Cable TV Service or Satellite TV system, you can be assured that you have the best service for your needs at the best possible price.
