The road to creating the Metrodome followed a number of twists and turns. The Dome was almost derailed a number of times. We invite you to learn more about the road people traveled on the way to making the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome "Minnesota's Rec Room." Bloomington's Metropolitan Stadium was built for the Minneapolis Millers minor league baseball team in 1956. It was expanded for major league sports when the Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Vikings came to town in 1961. While the Vikings played games there, the field at its core was a baseball stadium. It only seated 47,000 fans for football, and provided limited fan amenities and team revenues. The Vikings desired a new state-of-the-art home built for football, and the City of Minneapolis wanted to have that home in their downtown. Others had their eyes on wooing the Vikings, too, including Bloomington, St. Paul, the University of Minnesota, Eagan and Brooklyn Center. The idea for a domed stadium was actually conceived in the late 1960s when a Minneapolis architect named Robert Cerny introduced a concept of a domed football stadium in downtown Minneapolis. Over the next decade Cerny's idea became a political football. There was talk of a domed Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, a dome at the State Fairgrounds, a dome over Memorial Stadium and several other places in between. In the early 1970s, talk about a new stadium began to get serious. It had to. In 1975 the Minnesota Vikings' and Minnesota Twins' Metropolitan Stadium use agreements were set to expire.
