The Vikings released this statement a little while ago:
The Minnesota Vikings are working diligently with the University of Minnesota and the NFL on preparing TCF Bank Stadium in the event that Mall of America Field at the Metrodome will not be ready for Monday night’s Vikings-Bears game. Their cooperation has been tremendous.
The Vikings are committed to ensuring a home game in Minnesota for our fans. We will continue to update fans and media as the process moves forward, but at this time no further information is available.
Our contention is there will be more than enough fans who DON'T want to use their tickets that the 60,000-plus squeezing down to 50,000 won't be a problem (more on that tomorrow). For the time being, though, we ask you: Would you want to watch this outdoor Monday Night Football game at TCF Bank Stadium?
