The official name of the Vikings' new stadium is U.S. Bank Stadium. Its unofficial name is a bit catchier.
Say hello to your new stadium, Vikings fans. Welcome to Purple Heaven:

In addition to the obvious connection to the Vikings' primary color, the name also pays tribute to Prince, who passed away in April at the age of 57. Prince, who hailed from Minnesota, called himself a Vikings fan, as the team noted in their response to his death.
The construction of U.S. Bank Stadium, the newest NFL stadium, was completed earlier in June. As 247 Sports pointed out, it's the only stadium that features LED lights, which are prominently on display in the photo above. According to the Vikings' website, the cost of the lights totaled $1.3 million with the overall budget exceeding $1 billion.
Minnesota will host Super Bowl LII in 2018, giving the stadium a chance to show off those lights on the largest stage.
