Vikings and Stadium Authority Close to Completing Agreements
Another episode of 'As The Stadium Turns' should be completed today as the Minnesota Vikings and the stadium authority are close to completing agreements which would tie the franchise to the new stadium for at least the next 30 years.
StarTribune.com is reporting that authority board will vote on the entire agreement at 5pm today.
Approval of the agreements is necessary before the Vikings can firm up their financing for the project. The team is responsible for $477 million of the $975 million construction cost. The state of Minnesota and city of Minneapolis are picking up the rest.
