MANKATO, Minn. (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings have announced their training camp schedule, and will report to Mankato on Thursday, July 25 and start practicing the next day.
But they won’t be staying in their normal digs.
Mankato has been the training camp home of the Vikings for the last 47 years. But the iconic dorm facility housing the players, Gage Hall, will be imploded on Saturday to make room for new construction.
Jennifer Meyers, interim director of alumni relations, says she expects thousands of people to come to watch the implosion.
