The team previously announced that fans attending camp will not be required to wear masks or provide proof of vaccination. Though masks will not be mandatory, the team said they are “strongly encouraged for unvaccinated fans.” The Vikings also “strongly encourage” fans to get vaccinated.
Nearly the entire training camp experience will be cashless, the Vikings said, so fans should plan on bringing a credit or debit card or using options like Apple Pay.
Concessions will be available, including a food truck called the Vikings Table, which donates proceeds “to serve community members in need.” Fans are allowed to bring in their own water bottles.
Though current Vikings will not be allowed to sign in-person autographs “due to NFL-NFLPA COVID-19 protocols,” autographed footballs will be given away at the end of each practice, and former Vikings will sign autographs at each practice inside the Vikings Museum. With two exceptions (Saturday and Aug. 7), the Vikings will name a Fan of the Day at each practice. That fan will win an autographed item, a gift card to the team store and more.
The Vikings also announced three theme days: Pride Theme Day on Aug. 5, Youth and High School Football Day on Aug. 6 and Frontline Heroes Theme Day on Aug. 7.MORE NEWS: Vikings Place CB Harrison Hand On Reserve/COVID-19 List
