Well, it seems to be official. After 52 lovely years the Vikings are leaving Mankato for good.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune is reporting that next summer, the team will hold the 13-day preseason camp at its new headquarters in Eagan. The team’s new home is under construction just south of Hwy. 494 in Eagan. The opening is expected in March 2018 — a month after U.S. Bank Stadium plays host to the Super Bowl.
