MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The five architectural firms competing to design the new Minnesota Vikings stadium are getting a chance to show off their work at a Metrodome event.

The open house Thursday evening is sponsored by the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, which is working with the team to build the $975 million downtown Minneapolis stadium.

One bidder is familiar to Minnesota sports fans: Kansas City-based Populous, which designed Target Field, TCF Bank Stadium and Xcel Energy Center.

Also in the running are the firms that designed CenturyLink Field in Seattle; MetLife Stadium in New Jersey; the new San Francisco 49ers stadium; and the firm that designed stadiums for the Dallas Cowboys and Indianapolis Colts.

Authority and team officials are interviewing firms Thursday and Friday and plan to announce a designer on Sept. 14.
