    It looks huge. I didnt think they drew that many fans. With this, the twins, and Vikings new stadiums what will become of the Metrodome.

    I think the capacity is actually around 45K, but could be expanded to 55/60K in the future.

    wow, looks expensive. I wonder how far the property value will drop when the Hawks roll into town with all the white trailer trash behind them

    Re: New Gopher Stadium Pics

    I believe I heard around 45k or 55k, but it's built with room for easy expansion to 60-65k. Something like one of the endzones can easily be renovated but they don't want all the empty seats until they can fill them.

    I heard all this a few months back, but that's the general idea.

    The virtual tour on the Gopher site also looks pretty impressive...

    I like the brick, but i really like the updates that were done to Wake Forest's stadium that were posted the other night much better.

    Re: New Gopher Stadium Pics

    I don't think it is fair to judge their past attendance figures to predict the future. Honestly, would you want to attend your home football games in a dome? . (sorry UNI fan) Seriously, college football (unlike pro) is so much more about atmosphere and a stale dome stadium fails miserably in that department

    Someone asked about the future of the Metrodome. So far, the Vikings have failed to get anything approved for a new stadium so it is their home for now.

    This is a true statement. I lived in MLPS and people up there want to be OUTSIDE. That is why the Twins are going to set attendance records when the new place opens and the Gophers will likely do the same.

    Look at the St Paul Saints attendance numbers.

    Re: New Gopher Stadium Pics

    Also regarding attendance -- this is being built either on campus or adjacent to it. That in itself should boast attendance by several thousand as I assume it greatly increases the likelihood to draw more students to the games.
