Vikings reach tentative deal for new stadium

The Minnesota Vikings, Minneapolis and the state of Minnesota have reached a tentative agreement on a new $975 million dollar stadium.

The price tag will be split between the state (who would cover $398 million), the city of Minneapolis ($150 million) and the Vikings ($427 million). The city would also pick up the operating cost of $180 million over a 30 year span. The new site of the stadium would be at, or near the current Metrodome location.

The preliminary deal must still get approval through the Legislature and Minneapolis City Council, as well as the NFL before anything is finalized.
