TCF Bank Stadium

TCF Bank Stadium - Quick Facts

TCF Bank Stadium is the Gophers home for Big Ten Football! The process of building an on-campus stadium began in 2003 when the University of Minnesota began exploring their options for this new facility. Our dreams became a reality on January 23, 2007 when the Board of Regents approved the schematic design and budget for TCF Bank Stadium. In July 2007, construction officially began and our home is now complete. The stadium is not just a home for Golden Gopher Football and the University of Minnesota Marching Band; it is the home of college football tradition for all the residents of Minnesota.

State of Minnesota and University of Minnesota Support

In honor of the support provided by the State of Minnesota and its residents, the TCF Bank Stadium promenade is lined with 87 plaques representing the 87 counties of Minnesota. This stadium was also constructed with the support of the students of the University of Minnesota - "Hats Off to Thee!".

Veterans Tribute

The Veteran’s Tribute will honor all Minnesota veterans of past, present and future conflicts. The Tribute is located on the southwest corner of TCF Bank Stadium, between the main scoreboard and Gate E.
