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.

How do I apply a discount code?
If you received a promotional discount code from ParkWhiz, you'll want to be logged into your ParkWhiz account before applying the code on the checkout page. Make sure you’re using the same email address to log in as the one where you received that coupon!
Note that all discount codes will come from ParkWhiz directly. If you received your code from a third-party website, there's a significant chance it will not work. Unless specifically noted, discount codes cannot be used for monthly parking.
If you were issued ParkWhiz credit, the credit will automatically deduct from your total on the checkout page before your next purchase. Be sure you're logged in under the account to which the credit was issued before confirming that purchase, to see the credit applied.
How do I present my my pass on-site?
Easy peasy! As the vast majority of locations in our network accept a mobile pass, this means you can use your phone or other smart device to show proof of your prepaid purchase once you arrive at the parking facility. To be sure, verify the instructions on your pass to confirm the validation method. That section is titled "When You Arrive" in-app or "How To Park" if viewing on a desktop or mobile web.
For a seamless, no-printer-required experience, check out the ParkWhiz app! Thousands of space at your fingertips. Rest assured that if searching and booking on a mobile device, we won't show you any locations that require a printed pass! At least not until cars come equipped with printers!
If your location does not accept mobile passes, you'll need to print the pass before leaving the house.
Do I have in-and-out privileges?
In most instances, no. The majority of locations on ParkWhiz, including all those in New York City, do not allow re-entry.
If any specific parking facility does allow for you to come & go during the reserved timeframe, you'll see a "Reentry Allowed" amenity icon listed; this is shown in the details section both pre-purchase and post-purchase.
If you don't see anything on the listing page pertaining to specifically to reentry privileges, it's best to assume that you will not be allowed to come and go throughout the duration of your parking pass.
Are there any additional fees on site?
Generally, no. What you see online is what you pay as long as you park within the timeframe on your parking pass. Any time parked outside the arrival or departure listed on your pass will likely incur an additional onsite fee, as determined by the parking provider. ParkWhiz purchases include tax.
The only exception to the above pertains to oversize vehicle fees, which may apply to any vehicle larger than a sedan. Fee amounts vary between individual Parking Operators, and will be assessed on-site if you do not prepay for an oversize vehicle through our platform.
Although pricing structures are determined individually by the facility owner/operator, ParkWhiz prices tend to be cheaper than drive-up in most cases! If you ever feel the rate on ParkWhiz was more expensive than drive-up, take a photo of the price on-site and send us an email! We love deals as much as you do and are eager to ensure you're getting a fair rate.
