The Minnesota Vikings are a professional American football team from the city of Minneapolis, Minnesota. They are part of the NFC North of the National Football League (NFL). They play at the U.S. Bank Stadium based in the city of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota was founded by Max Winter in 1960 and began playing in the league in 1961. His best years were when they reached the Super Bowl in the 1970s, when they had a great defensive team, but have never been able to win it. In total they have played in four Super Bowls losing them all.

The Minnesota Vikings are competing in the NFC North of the NFL's National Conference (NFC) since its 2002 reshuffle.

The so-called "Vikes" have been one of the most successful franchises in the NFL with the second winning percentage, winning their respective division 18 times, the third among teams currently playing in the league.

From 1961 to 1981 the Vikings played as local in the old Metropolitan Stadium where many encounters were played under freezing temperatures. Since 1982 they set up their home in Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, along with the Golden Gophers of the University of Minnesota and until 2009 of the Minnesota Twins of Major League Baseball.

In the 1961 NFL Draft, the Vikings selected first-round running back Tommy Mason of Tulane University and in the third round they elect a young Georgia quarterback named Fran Tarkenton who would be the team icon in two decades, 60s and 70s.

His first head coach was Norm Van Brocklin (1961-1966).
