These are the the final days of the University of Minnesota's football stadium being known as TCF Bank Stadium. Beginning before the start of the 2021 football season, the venue will officially change its name to Huntington Bank Stadium.

University of Minnesota regents approved the name change yesterday. TCF Bank merged with Detroit based Huntington Bank in 2020, and the deal was finalized earlier this month.

University of Minnesota Athletic Director Mark Coyle says:

We are excited to partner with Huntington Bank and are excited to play in Huntington Bank Stadium this season and beyond. This partnership will allow Gopher Athletics to continue to strive for greatness and focus on the success of our student-athletes.

TCF Bank paid $35 million naming rights to the stadium in 2009 when it opened. TCF also retained the option to hold the naming rights to the venue until 2041. The financial terms of the TCF agreement are expected to remain in place for the successor Huntington Bank.

Last week the University of Minnesota announced that a plan for full capacity for sporting events are in place starting with fall.  The first sports to offer this includes soccer, volleyball and football.

University of Minnesota Golden Gopher football opens its 2021 season on Thursday night, September 2nd at Huntington Bank Stadium on the U of M campus in Minneapolis against the Ohio State Buckeyes.
