Vikings Volunteer To Pay For 1/3 Of Outdoor Stadium
Minnesota Vikings Vice President of Stadium Development Lester Bagley says the Vikings would be willing to pay for 1/3 the cost of an outdoor stadium with the remaining 2/3 being paid for publicly. Bagley understands an outdoor stadium may not get legislative approval when the lawmakers take up the debate again in February. The cost of an outdoor stadium is expected to be approximately $700 Million. The cost of a roofed stadium is expected to be approximately $1 Billion. The Vikings are calling this legislative session critical.
