The 2020 NFL season may very well go on without any fans in the stands, but that doesn’t mean people won’t get to experience one part of the game.
Rochelle Olson of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that the Minnesota legislature has given the Vikings permission to sell alcohol in the Commons park, a 4.2-acre gathering space outside U.S. Bank Stadium.
“Team vice president Lester Bagley said there’s no game plan yet for selling alcohol in the park.
“The biggest issue is the lack of fan gathering spaces and disappearing tailgating opportunities — a time-honored tradition for the Vikings fans in the days of yore,” Bagley said.”
Governor Tim Walz said he will sign the bill very soon.
If fans are permitted to be outside the stadium, social distancing guidelines would still be in effect.
With fans not having many places to gather before games or celebrate after, the Vikings could be running into a profitable adventure outside their stadium.
