The National Football League (NFL) announced that the Giants vs Vikings game venue will be moved to Detroit’s Ford Field and will take place on Monday night, after the Metrodome‘s roof collapsed on Sunday morning due to heavy snow storm.

As reported on Fox News on Sunday, NFL decided the match between the New York Giants and Minnesota Vikings to be moved to Detroit and will start at 7:20 p.m. ET.

Fox said they will still broadcast the game but only in the New York/New Jersey and Minneapolis-St. Paul markets, while DIRECTV subscribers can also watch through ‘NFL Sunday Ticket’.

The much-awaited football game was originally scheduled to be on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET, but was postponed due to heavy snow storm, which also caused some delayed flights in St. Paul Airport in Minneapolis, including the flight for the New York Giants.

As of this writing, the extent of damage of the Metrodome‘s roof has not yet finalized and is still under assessment, as well as the date when it can be repaired.

As reported at also on Sunday night, original Giants-Vikings game tickets will still be entertained and preferred seats along the 50-yard line will also be provided.

Free general-admission game tickets will also be available at the Ford Field box office starting 9 a.m. ET.
