If I had my choice, I would like to see the stadium built with an open roof and made to look like an old Viking style "colliseum" with great big columns shaped like swords running vertically along the sides of the building and sticking into the ground.

The top of the building would also feature be large torches, similar to the opening flame of the Olympics, but a lot bigger. Then, they could make a big ceremony out of lighting the Viking lanterns before every game, almost like the original Vikings might have done before going into battle.

Also, maybe have the walls - inside and outside, look like they are made of stone, and have big Viking shields and other weapons hanging on them to create the proper atmosphere.

the only problem with this is that the legislature that passed the funding for the stadium wants it to be a multi-purpose one. not solely for the Vikes.


Yeah I know we have to deal with the reality of finances. I was kind of just saying what I would like in a perfect world.

There have been NO official plans accepted, or proposed, but HKS's website features these pictures on their link for the project.
