Vikings’ Wilf Talks Stadium At The Legislature
Viking owner Zigi Wilf visited the State Capitol Thursday to thank sponsors of the stadium bill filed earlier this week. He remains confident a stadium bill will pass the legislature this legislative session despite concerns that many lawmakers have over the state budget problems. Wilf is confident the Vikings have a local partner and is keeping his options open. The Vikings are expected to pay for 1/3 of the cost of a roofed stadium with a local partner picking up a third and the state paying for the remaining third. Wilf refused to answer the question of what will happen to the Vikings if a stadium bill doesn’t pass this legislative session.
