The Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minnesota, is home to the National Football League's Minnesota Vikings. In addition to the Minnesota Vikings, the Minnesota Twins of Major League Baseball call the Metrodome home. The Minnesota Timberwolves of the NBA spent the 1989-90 season in the Metrodome. Officially called the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, the Metrodome was named after the former mayor of Minneapolis.
Construction for the Metrodome began on December 20, 1979, and the Metrodome opened April 3, 1982. The cost of construction was funded by the state of Minnesota. The Metrodome is the only financially self-supported public stadium in America that does not rely on a continuing tax subsidy. Owned and operated by the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission, the Metrodome cost $68 million to construct.
The Metrodome playing surface was originally SuperTurf from when it first opened until 1986, and then it was AstroTurf until 2003, and is now FieldTurf. A two-layer Teflon fabric roof covers the Metrodome. Three times in Metrodome history heavy snows caused a puncture in the roof and caused the roof to deflate. The Metrodome seats 64,035 for football games, and 55,883 for baseball games. Over 300 events a year at the Metrodome have drawn well over 55 million people since 1982.
Outside the stadium are plenty of places for handicapped parking. There are handicap entrances located at Gates D, F, and G of the Metrodome. While there are select areas that are handicap accessible, availability for such areas is limited and guests in need of such services are asked to call the Metrodome if such an option is needed.
In addition to sporting events, various concerts have made their way through the Metrodome such as Paul McCartney, Metallica and Tom Petty. Many historical events have happened at the Metrodome in addition to Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Vikings games. The 1985 MLB All-Star Game, the 1987 and 1981 World Series, and Super Bowl XXVI in 1992 were all held at the Metrodome. The Metrodome will also host the NCAA Men's Midwest Regionals in March of 2006.
