Monterrey Security, the security company for U.S. Bank Stadium, has been fired. A source told Fox 9 that stadium operator SMG made the decision Monday night. The security shakeup gives a new contractor just five days to prepare for Sunday's Minnesota Vikings vs Detroit Lions game at the stadium.
The source tells Fox 9 that Whelan Security will replace Monterrey. The source said with all of logistics involved in an NFL game, it will be a "s---storm."
This was the second year of a three-year contract between SMG and Monterrey to provide 24/7 security at U.S. Bank Stadium. U.S. Bank Stadium opened in July 2016. The stadium will host Super Bowl LII in February 2018.When Monterrey was hired as the security contractor for the inaugural season at U.S. Bank Stadium, they were touted for their "high standard of excellence with employees in regard to certification and training." Monterrey is the largest Latino-owned security firm in the Midwest, and more than two-thirds of their workforce is comprised of women or minorities from executive leadership to entry-level employees.
