Other information Fans attending Friday's Prep Bowl should be aware of potential issues with traffic and parking before heading to the game.
Parking at US Bank Stadium is limited, with most of the available parking in public lots around the stadium. Parking spots at several City of Minneapolis public ramps can be reserved in advance online, and many parking ramps are connected to the Minneapolis Skyway, which is also connected to US Bank Stadium. Fans may also wish to take the light rail train from one of several park-and-ride lots further from the stadium.
Traffic on Friday is expected to be heavy due to ongoing construction on Interstate 35W, as well as Black Friday shoppers. Fans may want to give themselves plenty of time to get to the stadium.
Gates at the stadium will open at 9 a.m., which is one hour before kickoff.
In addition, a Welcome Home celebration for the team will be held Friday, beginning at roughly 6 p.m., at the Public School Auditorium. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.
