About 300 tickets to the May 13 unveiling of the design for the new Vikings stadium in downtown Minneapolis will be available to the general public, the head of the public stadium authority said Thursday, May 2.

The free tickets will be first-come, first-served and probably distributed at the Metrodome rather than the Guthrie Theater, where the unveiling will be held, said Michele Kelm-Helgen, chair of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, which is overseeing construction of the $975 million project.

Big screen would be a horrible idea. If you're in a sports stadium you need to be watching the field.

But think of the Kiss Cam and Underwater Cam and all of the other ridiculous forms of "entertainment" they must constantly show on there!!!

I really think this is pretty close to what the stadium will look like.

I REALLY wouldn't mind that. Indoor stadium that has glass all around it? Gives the impression of it being outdoors as much as it can.

I strongly disagree, not every seat in the house is a good seat and a lot of the times you can get a lot better view of the action through the Screen.

Agreement reached with University of Minnesota on use of TCF Bank Stadium for 2014 and 2015 seasons

The Facility Use Agreement stipulates the following:

Lease Duration/Scheduling Restrictions
The Vikings are expected to play at TCF Bank Stadium for the 2014 and 2015 seasons, but the agreement allows for use through the 2017 season with proper notification.
    -A standard NFL season includes 10 football games (two preseason and eight regular season games), plus any home playoff games.
    -TCF Bank Stadium will be available for Sunday games as well as for Saturday games when there is not a conflict with a scheduled Gopher football home game. The Vikings may play one weeknight game per season when University classes are not in session and on a date approved by the University.
    -The Vikings will work with the NFL to minimize conflicts with the University’s academic calendar, intercollegiate athletic activities and other campus events.

Compensation:
Along with reimbursing the University for all Vikings game day expenses, the team will provide $3 million annually in compensation:
    $250,000 rent per game.
    $50,000 share of concessions, advertising and sponsorship revenue per game.
Capital Improvements
Certain improvements to TCF Bank Stadium are necessary for winter stadium operation and to meet specific NFL mandates, including:
    -Installation of new turf and an appropriate heating element for the playing surface to be determined by Vikings and University officials.
    -Installation of heat trace pipe to ensure cold weather plumbing functionality.
    -Potential installation of additional temporary seating in the western end zone plaza, subject to approval by the University’s building code division (number of seats yet to be determined by Vikings and University officials).
    -Any necessary modification of existing video platform to meet NFL broadcast requirements.
    -Installation of additional insulation in various locations around TCF Bank Stadium.
    -Build-out storage space within TCF Bank Stadium.

Alcohol Sales
Alcohol sales and consumption will be allowed in TCF Bank Stadium on Vikings game days, subject to Board of Regents policies and restrictions.

Tailgating
Tailgating will be allowed in parking lots designated by the University under the same rules in effect for University football game days.
