BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK! - Vikings Field - PURPLE PEOPLE EATERS!

 

 

Manufacturing the Purple turf for the Viking's endzones.

Throughout history the Vikings are portrayed as fierce ruthless warriors with a reputation for being brutal plunderers. Viking warriors would fearlessly swarm and attack their foes. One legendary band of Viking warriors known as the Purple People Eaters lived up to this legacy. They were just as fierce as their Scandinavian namesakes, without mercy attacked their opponents offensive lines and brought down the mightiest of quarterbacks becoming the most identifiable and feared front four in all of the NFL.

Today the Minnesota Vikings playing surface at U.S.Bank stadium features purple colored endzones with VIKINGS spelled out in stylized letters at each end of the field. These striking purple endzones combined with the field graphics create an exciting and explosive visual for any football fan who visits U.S. Bank Stadium. The photo below shows the purple endzone turf being produced on a tufting machine at Turf Nation’s state-of-the art manufacturing facility in Dalton, GA.
