MN Vikings Training Camp Attendance 15 Aug 13

The Minnesota Vikings say that around 60,000 football fans attended training camp in Mankato this year. On Wednesday the Vikings said good-bye to local fans after the team’s last practice of the year on the MSU campus. Just before camp opened, the Vikings signed an agreement with the college to host training camp through 2015. A team spokesperson says that attendance at this year’s camp topped last year, when an estimated 52,000 fans watched the team practice. Training camp generates about $5-million each year for the Mankato area economy.
