The Minnesota Vikings have partnered with the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority (MSFA) to launch a Legacy Bricks program as part of the new stadium. Starting Thursday, a limited number of fans will be able to etch their names into bricks used in the construction. The bricks will be placed near the five pivoting glass doors in the nearly three-acre west plaza.
"This was a perfect opportunity to recognize the passionate fans who have supported this team for more than 50 years," Vikings owner/president Mark Wilf said in a statement.
Fans will have the opportunity to choose from multiple styles when purchasing a Legacy Brick. For $160 they will receive a 4-by-8-inch paver, which includes up to three lines of text. If they spend $295 they will receive an 8x8 paver, which includes up to six lines of text. Or they have the option of the $360 8x8 logo paver, which includes the Vikings Norseman logo and up to four lines of text.
With the purchase of one of the engraved bricks, fans will also receive a replica and an official certificate of ownership. They will also have to opportunity to purchase extra replicas as well as a custom-engraved display case.
After the instillation of all the bricks in the plaza, fans will be given a locator map so they can easily find their engraved brick when visiting the stadium.
"Launching the Legacy Brick program is a unique addition to this world-class stadium and will give Minnesotans a way to be part of the stadium's history," said MSFA Chair Michele Kelm-Helgen.
Cold Spring Granite Company, a Minnesota-based company, will be crafting the bricks with stone quarried from Minnesota.
For more information about the program or to purchase a Legacy Brick fans can go to the team’s web site or call 844-MN-BRICK (844-662-7425).
