Vikings Stadium Bill Passes Senate
The Vikings Stadium bill passed 36-30 in the State Senate Thursday afternoon and now the bill goes to the Governor and he’s expected to sign it. The $975 Million stadium will be built with $477 Million from the Vikings and a combined $498 Million from the state at the city of Minneapolis. The Vikings are expected to continue to play at the Metrdome through the 2014 season and won’t move into the new stadium until 2016. The Vikings will play some game in the Metrodome in 2015 and some at TCF Bank Stadium. The stadium will be built next to the Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis.
