The Minnesota Vikings will check in to training camp on Thursday for the 47th year in Mankato.
You can bet the fans won't be far behind.
The Vikings' Village will be ready for the spectators too, as construction is ahead of schedule.
Around thirty crew members started the task of assembling the exhibit last Wednesday.
Vikings' sales and marketing coordinator C–J Rugh says while the physical work is just underway, the planning starts in April as soon as the draft party is over.
He says it is full go with everything in Mankato after the 4th of July.
The bleachers and tents are going up to be prepared for opening the gates to Vikings Village on Friday at 10 a–am.
