Like many stadiums in the country, US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, home of the Minnesota Vikings, is light and bright due to its clear ceiling and tall windows. When approached to possibly host the 2019 NCAA Final Four tournament, there was one major challenge that the stadium had to solve. They needed to block sunlight coming into the stadium during the tournament. The lighting has to be consistent during the games, with no shadows affecting play. The stadium put out a request for bid that for two years went unanswered. No one had ever successfully accomplished darkening a stadium of this type and size before.
bluemedia took on the project. Our engineers and designers worked to come up with a solution that did the job, and we completed it with perfect timing for the 2019 Final Four. Watch the video now to see how we did it!
You and your team were awesome partners for the Championship Campus and CFP related events, and I wanted to thank you and let you know I really appreciated all you did.
It was really amazing how much the question mark backpacks helped individuals identify who they could go to for questions. I was just carrying one of them (not wearing) through the convention center and was stopped so many times by fans with questions.
