Sunday, September 18, is the big day that the Minnesota Vikings will take to the field for their very first home game at their new home, U.S. Bank Stadium for a game against the rival Green Bay Packers. Anticipation has been running high ever since construction first began for this architecturally unique and state-of-the-art stadium, and now fans will finally get to experience all the excitement. Can’t be at the game in person? EarthCam’s live webcam takes you to Minneapolis and lets you virtually join the pre-game fun.
EarthCam construction cameras have been onsite since December 2013, documenting the demolition of the former Metrodome and construction of the new HSK Architects-designed U.S. Bank Stadium. Fans of the purple and gold have been able to keep track of the construction process thanks to live video and updating high definition megapixel imagery made available on a public web page.
In 2015, EarthCam documented $221 billion of construction projects. The company is headquartered in Northern New Jersey and maintains 12 additional offices worldwide.
Projects documented by EarthCam include: 9/11 Memorial Museum, Atlanta Falcons’ Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Barclays Center, Statue of Liberty and Washington Monument Restorations, New NY Bridge, LaGuardia Airport, The Kingdom Tower, Panama Canal Expansion, Smithsonian Institution Restoration, Brickell City Centre, Minnesota Vikings’ U.S. Bank Stadium, San Diego New Central Library, Qatar Rail, Whitney Museum of American Art, Louvre in Abu Dhabi, Levi’s Stadium and National Museum of African American History and Culture.
