Sunday night's home opener at U.S. Bank Stadium will be extra exciting as the Vikings unveil a new "Vikings Skol Chant" during pregame festivities.

The chant will be led by Vikings alumni and it'll resemble the "Viking War Chant" done by the Iceland men's national soccer team this year. A drum beats twice followed by a collective overhead clap by the fans. It gradually increases in tempo before morphing into an all-out clap.

Other pregame festivities will include players warming up on the field while celebrity radio star DJ Skee puts on a live DJ performance.

Ex-Viking Ahmad Rashad will also narrate a pregame video dedicated to the history of the Vikings, including highlights from years past.

The Minnesota Orchestra will put on the halftime show with music inspired by Vikings fans, Minnesota's history and the late, great Prince.
