Minnesota Vikings fans, at least some of them, can soon get a sneak preview of the team’s new $1 billion stadium.

The team and Van Wagner Sports & Entertainment have completed the Stadium Preview Center adjacent to the stadium’s construction site in downtown Minneapolis (now home to the hulk that was once the Metrodome). The space will be open to the public — by appointment — later this week.

The 7,500-square-foot Preview Center is located on the fifth floor of the 1010 Metrodome Square Building, 1010 S. 7th St.

The Vikings are currently contacting season-ticket holders to arrange appointments, followed by those who are on the team’s waiting list. Non-season ticket holders can sign up for the waitlist or track developments on the stadium website, www.newminnesotastadium.com.

The interactive space is the largest ever built by an NFL team, according to the Vikings. It overlooks the stadium construction site and includes a “custom-filmed experiential player tunnel and Vikings locker room experience, two authentic suite build-outs, a 24-seat club seating section, 37 high-definition televisions and seven interactive kiosks,” the team said in a news release.

The center also contains a cityscape model and a detailed architectural stadium model. Visitors can also see 360-degree panoramic views from 275 vantage points within the stadium.

“We believe the new stadium will provide the premier gameday experience in the NFL, and this Preview Center will help bring that into focus for Vikings fans,” said Steve LaCroix, the team’s vice president of sales and marketing and chief marketing officer.

The new stadium is slated to open July 2016.
