The Vikings say they still hope to play their Monday night game against the Chicago Bears at TCF Bank Stadium, but its not official just yet.
The team issued this press release Wednesday afternoon that updates the situation:
At this time, NFL officials are touring TCF Bank Stadium to ensure its safety for our fans and its ability to meet the primary technical requirements for an NFL game. Ultimately the decision to re-locate a game is the league's in consultation with the two teams. The NFL supports the plan to play Monday night's game at TCF Bank Stadium but is currently ensuring viability of this plan.
At the same time, the Vikings and the University of Minnesota are diligently working through all of the issues associated with moving a game such as tickets, parking, and operations. The organization is working to accommodate our fans’ questions, and we will continue to inform them on this fluid situation as soon as more information is available.
