First look: Vikings stadium caters to connected fans

The stadium, which seats 66,200 people, is designed to accommodate all fans on their devices at one time, but actual use is more likely to hover at about 30,000 fans during a regular season Vikings game. Burstable bandwidth will be tapped for events such as Super Bowl LII, when seat capacity is expandable to 70,000.

“Theoretically, all 66,000 of us at a Vikings game could jump onto the Wi-Fi,” said John Penhollow, vice president of corporate & technology partnerships with the Minnesota Vikings.
