MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — U.S Bank Stadium is making some costly changes before hosting the NCAA Final Four next April.

The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority signed off on Thursday spending around $5 million to cover U.S Bank Stadium’s roof and glass walls with a darkening fabric. It will require half a million square feet of fabric to black out the stadium.

Almost $2 million of that will be paid for by the Local Organizing Committee.
