MINNEAPOLIS (WFXR) — The massive U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis is ready to host the Monday’s championship game.

U.S. Bank Stadium is the home of the Minnesota Vikings. While it may play host to an NFL team, it’s desgined to host multiple sporting events.

The facility opened on July 22, 2016 and has hosted the Summer X Games (2017 and 2018) and Super Bowl LII (2018).
