Sunday's high will be around 8 degrees, according to AccuWeather. That will set the record for the coldest kickoff temperature for a Super Bowl. When Minneapolis played host in 1992, it was 26 degrees at kickoff.
U.S. Bank Stadium will seat about 65,000 people for Sunday's game between the Eagles and Patriots. That is about 2,000 more fans than the Metrodome seating for Super Bowl XXVI between Buffalo and Washington.
Want to be one of those 65,000 fans? As of Thursday, there were still tickets left on secondary websites such as StubHub and Vivid Seats. It will cost you, though, with the least expensive ticket being about $2,300.
It cost Minneapolis $587 per square foot to build U.S. Bank Stadium. The total bill was $1.1 billion. That's a far cry from the Metrodome, which cost just $135.1 million (adjusted for inflation) to construct.
Going to the game? You can watch the action on the field, but there also will be replays on the 8,160-square-foot big screen — 10th largest in the NFL. If that's not enough, there's also a 4,400-square-foot monitor.
While in the stadium, take a moment to reflect on the men and women who worked to construct U.S. Bank Stadium. It took 3,497,834 hours — 3 million of those from Minnesotans — to build it.
