Sports Fields for
At New TCO Performance Center
On June 27, a MPSTMA group of 85 met in Eagan to tour
the new sports fields at the TCO Performance Center - practice home
of the Minnesota Vikings Football Club. Vikings' Sports Field
Managers Grant Davisson and Dan Seidel hosted and addressed the
group and talked about how each of the four outdoor sports fields
differ. Each field compares to the variety of surfaces the Vikings
will face on the road in the National Football League. Local
football teams will have opportunities to play on these fields. The
synthetic turf, pictured above, is wide enough and long enough for a
regulation soccer field. The group had lunch near the indoor
maintenance facility and the natural grass fields.
