Wilf Makes Clear Commitment To Build Vikings Stadium In Arden Hills

MAKING UP THE DIFFERENCE: In Minneapolis, Mike Kaszuba noted the team has "pledged at least $407 million toward a new football stadium, but calculations by state officials show that the team would bring roughly $225 million of its own money to the deal and possibly less." The rest "could be made up through a National Football League loan that would be repaid by visiting teams and the sale of personal seat licenses." Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission Chair Ted Mondale said, "They keep their stuff extremely close to the vest." The Vikings have "resisted attempts to break down how much their organizations would bring to a stadium deal" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 11/13).
