The Minnesota Vikings Training Camp will be held in Eagan, Minnesota for the first time in 2018!
For the past 52 years, the Vikings have lived out a tradition of hosting training camp in Mankato, Minnesota. Now the baton has been passed over to Eagan, home of the brand new headquarters and training facility for the purple and gold. Eagan couldn’t be more excited to honor the legacy and not only create new experiences for Vikings fans, but sustain the memories and traditions Mankato perfected.
