Vikings Roll Out Season-Ticket Sales For TCF Bank Stadium After Diligent Planning
Published January 13, 2014
DEAL DELAYED? Minnesota state officials yesterday announced that a legal challenge has "forced the state to delay" a $468M bond sale to finance construction of the Vikings' new stadium. The officials said that the lawsuit "jeopardizes plans to open the facility" for the '16 season. Minnesota Management & Budget Commissioner Jim Showalter said that he "hoped the delay would be brief but that officials decided it was 'appropriate and prudent' to postpone the sale until the Minnesota Supreme Court can sort out the legal issues." The AP's Steve Karnowski noted former Minneapolis mayoral candidate Doug Mann on Friday "filed the challenge with the Minnesota Supreme Court," asking for a "restraining order to block the bond sale" (AP, 1/12).
