Target Field won't host Vikings

Posted on: December 13, 2010 4:34 pm
Target Field Wrigley Field hosted a college football game and Yankee Stadium is on tap to host a college football bowl game, but Target Field won't be joining the football frenzy.

Although the Minnesota Vikings are currently homeless after the collapse of the Metrodome -- the Twins' former home -- they won't look to follow the Twins to Target Field. Nobody from the Vikings or NFL have contacted the Twins, team president Dave St. Peter told the Star Tribune 's La Velle E. Neal III .

"Yes, this facility could hold both football and soccer games," St. Peter said.

It's more likely the Vikings will play at the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium.

Still, St. Peter said there are two different configurations for football fields and in the future the team would consider hosting "other functions" at the park, but would prefer to wait a year or two before doing so.
