Last week I had the change to take a tour of the new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis as part of Sports Business Journal’s Sports Facilities & Franchises conference. It seems only appropriate that right around the same time, EarthCam released their 32-month long time lapse video of the entire demolition and construction process.
“From the demolition of the beloved Metrodome to the inaugural home-opener at the game-changing U.S. Bank Stadium, it has been an honor to document this historic transformation of downtown Minneapolis,” said Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam. “We worked hand in hand with the Vikings organization to share their vision and throughout this rewarding process produced a time-lapse movie that I hope generations of Vikings fans will be proud of.”
“From day one, the stadium webcams provided Vikings fans and other curious onlookers with a detailed look at the largest construction project in Minnesota history,” said Bryan Harper, Vice President, Content & Production. “The interactive, immediate, and high quality nature of the EarthCam technology led to incredible engagement via our content platforms. The beauty of this stadium is apparent to all, and we are thrilled to forever have this project archived in this manner.”
