The Minnesota Vikings will spend their next two seasons playing at the University of Minnesota while construction on their new stadium is completed.

In the meantime, you can watch the construction of ‘Vikings Stadium’ in real-time thanks to a camera fixated above the construction zone.

Taking a page from the San Francisco 49ers, who did something similar during the building of Levi’s Stadium, the Vikings have put up a live video feed which shows every part of construction, from concrete being poured to the installation of rebar.

In addition to the live stream video, there are two constantly updated pictures which show the construction angle from the air and from the side so you can track the progress of the build.

Probably nothing more than a novelty for those who aren’t hardcore Vikings fans, but still an interesting concept – especially as the stadium nears completion down the road.

The unnamed venue will be the first fixed roof stadium since the Detroit Lions opened Ford Field in 2002 and will be able to host multiple events, including concerts, indoor soccer and much more.
