University of Minnesota - TCF Bank Stadium

2009 University Avenue SE
Minneapolis, MN 55455

The stadium’s open-air horseshoe design allows a capacity of 50,000, which includes general seats and an impressive array of Premium Seating. With sustainability in mind, 97% of the nearly 9,000 tons of steel used in the structure comes from recycled steel. Flexibility is also a key component of the design, with expansion up to 80,000 seats. All those seats are housed in a collegiate look and feel that will complement the campus environment, create two landscaped plazas, and accommodate other uses. The total cost is $288.5 million, which includes site preparation, the stadium itself, and district improvements.

The improvements are particularly notable. The stadium is part of a 75 acre expansion of the Twin Cities campus—the largest since the West Bank was built in the 1960s. Current plans for the area call for the construction of as many as 10 new academic buildings by 2015. The proposed Central Corridor light rail transit line is expected to run near the stadium, with a station in Stadium Village serving the facility. TCF Bank Stadium site is located on the northeast side of the Minneapolis campus, near the site of the former Memorial Stadium.

The University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium became the 1st LEED Certified Collegiate Football Facility.
