Vikings owner / president Mark Wilf discusses unique 2020 season
The Vikings won’t have fans at their first two games at U.S. Bank Stadium this season, but they hope that might change as the season progresses. That was the main point of Vikings owner and president Mark Wilf’s season preview press conference on Monday.

The Vikings open the season Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. No fans will be admitted for that game or for the Vikings second home game on September 27th against Tennessee.
Six NFL teams (Cleveland, Dallas, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Kansas City, Miami) will open to crowds of sizes varying from 2,500 to 16,700 at their home openers. All six teams say remaining open through the season is subject to change.
While some stadiums have already established they won’t open to fans all season, many – including the Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium – will evaluate the safety situation as the season progresses.
