The Minnesota Vikings (and Minnesota Twins, for that matter) former home, the Metrodome, was a pretty sizable stadium in it’s own right.

But the Minnesota Vikings new venue being built where the Metrodome once stood? It’s a monstrosity in comparison to the Metrodome.

The Minnesota Vikings posted a fact sheet on their website today comparing the two venues and along with that was a computer rendering of the size difference between the two stadiums. Needless to say, the new home will be rather impressive – just from the size itself.

Overall, the stadium’s square footage will nearly double from the Metrodome’s 900,000 square feet to the new stadium’s 1, 750,000 square feet.

In addition to the overall size, the new stadium will feature over double the restrooms and will have 8,000 club seats as opposed to 243 before.

Not only that but the Vikings new stadium will have plenty more concession stands, escalators (your knees will thank you) and thousands of extra ‘premium’ parking spots.

Still – look at the size difference. Absurd.
