MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – U.S. Bank Stadium, the future home of the Minnesota Vikings, is 90 percent complete, and stadium officials are looking to hire more than 2,500 part-time workers next month.

The Minnesota Sports Facility Authority announced Wednesday that a job fair will be held in late April to secure part-time staff for upcoming events, including Vikings games.

Stadium partners looking for workers include the Vikings, Aramark, Main Gate Retail, security providers and cleaning services.

“These new employees will become the face of U.S. Bank Stadium’s Minnesota hospitality,” said Michele Kelm-Helgen, chair of the MSFA, in a statement. “There will be hundreds of public events in addition to Vikings games, and they create significant employment opportunities from guest services, to concessions, security and retail.”

The job fair is slated to take place at the Minneapolis Convention Center from April 26 to April 28.

Those looking for work are encouraged to apply online, as organizers say applicants will be pre-screened ahead of the fair.

U.S. Bank Stadium is on schedule to open in July.
