TCF Bank Stadium is home to the University of Minnesota football team – and for the past two years, the Minnesota Vikings. Its capacity for football games is just shy of 51,000, according to the school.

Weekend packages, which include both the Stadium Series game as well as the alumni game, range from $109-$449.
