Three "group spaces," which were originally slated for future build-out in the U.S. Bank Stadium, have been fast-tracked by the Minnesota Vikings and will be open in time for the scheduled July opening, the Vikings announced Monday.

The three areas include two bars, the Lodge Bar and Truss Bar, as well as a collection of group "cabins." The newly green-lighted spaces will accommodate 900 fans in the stadium’s northeast corner between the upper and lower concourses. The areas will feature views of the field, west video board and Minneapolis downtown skyline, according to the team.

A new bridge outside the Truss Bar will lead fans directly past the primary ridge truss that extends the length of the stadium- hence the name, we assume.

The new spaces will cost approximately $7.5 million and will be paid for privately by the Vikings.

Fans can sign up to receive more as information as it becomes available at Vikings.com.
