Football stadiums, in a way, are just as much a tribute to their sport as they are a temple for their team. Following this analogy, TCF Bank Stadium is a monument to American football, and acts as a cathedral to the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers. However, not only are the Golden Gophers at “The Bank,” but the Minnesota Vikings are scheduled to be there for two seasons, which will make it difficult to find Gophers Football parking. Opened in 2009, “The Gopher Hole” acts as a replacement for the Metrodome, where the Gophers played previously, along with the Vikings. While awaiting the construction of the new Vikings Stadium, the NFL team of the same name will play its 2014 and 2015 seasons inside of TCF Bank Stadium. Minnesota Gophers football has become more popular over the years, making it more difficult to find Golden Gophers football stadium parking spaces. If you plan ahead and book your TCF Bank Stadium parking spot ahead of time with ParkWhiz, you can save yourself both time and frustration.
Entering existence in 1882, the Golden Gophers are one of the senior members in college football, which for them is both positive and negative. Being older than the Big Ten means that expectations are higher - players would have to wonder how they could surpass those that had come before them. History reflects this for Minnesota, such as the 1903 to 1905 unbeaten streak (34 wins, one tie), three National Championships in a row (1934-’36) and so on. After 1961, things seemed to settle, but only recently did they start going to bowl games again. While tradition and history can cause pressure and anxiety, it can also bring hope for the future, which is why the fans still love the Gophers. Winning isn't everything, but planning for challenges certainly does help. Planning ahead for sporting events is always smart, especially when it comes to NCAA games, so book your Gophers football parking spot in advance with ParkWhiz.
All you need to do is find your University of Minnesota Football game, book your MN Gophers Football parking spot and print your ParkWhiz parking pass. Bring your pass with you to TCF Bank Stadium, and enjoy the game.
