Vikings Setting Up Temporary HQs In London For Wembley Game

Vikings players and coaches will leave for London tonight on an overnight charter flight for Sunday's game at Wembley Stadium against the Steelers, and a second charter will depart Wednesday "carrying the entire front-office staff, spouses, corporate sponsors and others." The team "will send their cheerleaders, the Skol Line drummers, the Gjallarhorn and 20,000 pounds of gear." Their hotel "will be transformed into a mini-Winter Park, complete with replicas of the team's weight room and meeting rooms" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 9/23).
