MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minnesota Vikings’ value has jumped 22 percent on a business magazine’s ranking of NFL franchises thanks to its planned new stadium.

An analysis by Forbes magazine found the Vikings had the biggest jump in value in the league.

The magazine released its 2012 team valuations on Wednesday. The other team to get financing for a new stadium, the San Francisco 49ers, had a 19 percent jump in value.

Forbes executive editor Mike Ozanian says that’s directly due to the stadium deals and the expected spike in profits that will accompany them.

Forbes values the Vikings at $975 million. That ranks only 22nd of 32 NFL teams.
