US Bank Stadium adding turf ‘zapper’

Football season is right around the corner but it will look quite different amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Officials with the Minnesota Sports Facility Authority, which is in charge of U.S. Bank Stadium, said they’ve spent more than $15,000 on a machine that will use ultraviolet light to sanitize the turf before games.

Additionally, officials are finding new places for more sponsorships to make up for lost ticket revenue.

The Vikings open the season at home on Sept. 13.
