US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis MN is home to the Minnesota Vikings.  This stadium ranks #3 on my NFL list because of fan experience and newness.  US Bank Stadium is the newest stadium in the NFL opening in 2016.  It’s features include a see through glass roof and suites at field level nicknamed touchdown suites.  Although the roof is closed it still looks like an open roof because of it’s completely see through feature.  Nicknames the ship because of the appearance outside making it look like a ship.  It’s seating capacity is on the low side of the NFL with 66,220 even though it was built just last year.  The stadium is designed to keep the noise flowing throughout the stadium rather then gathering in one place making the home field element great.
