History

 

The club started around 1989 at Capazello's restaurant in Whitehall by Mike Flint. Through the common bond of their Minnesota Vikings fandom, people would meet there every week to watch the games. A stroke of genius occurred and Mike decided to start a true Vikings fan club. Over the ensuing years, the club had various homes, from Damon's at The Continent, to the Crown Sports Lounge on Lazelle Road, to Tony's at Maize Road and Morse Road, and The Ozone in Worthington. Around 2008, Mike decided to give up leading the club, with Kerry Baker (ViQueen), Eric Eyen (Eric the Purple) and others taking over those duties since then. Between 2009 and 2012, Brewsky's Sports Bar and Grill on Kenny Road near Henderson Road was our home. For the 2013 season we were at Gallo's Tap Room at Bethel Road and Olentangy River Road. From 2014 through 2017 we were at the Blarney Stone Tavern on West Dublin-Granville Road in Worthington. Starting with the 2018 season we have our best home location ever: Fenders Bar in the Polaris Area. Through all the years, each week we have gathered die-hard, long-time club Vikings fans, fair-weather fans who come out only when we’re winning, Vikings fans who just happen to be in town for the weekend, along with their family and friends to create a game-watching experience that’s the next best thing to being at the Vikings’ stadium! SKOL VIKINGS!
