Report: Agreement reached in Vikings stadium talks

Saturday February 18th, 2012

Minnesota, the city of Minneapolis, and the Minnesota Vikings have reached an agreement that will give the Vikings a new stadium, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

The sides will divide the cost of the $975 million project, with the city paying $180 million in operating costs over the next 30 years, the report states. Even if the agreement holds, there are still several impediments that could infringe upon the agreement in the political arena. In addition, the NFL would also have to approve the deal.
