It has been a lengthy road, but Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton intends to sign the Vikings Stadium bill into law in a ceremony at noon on Monday.
Dayton continues to be among the greatest cheerleaders for that new $975 million project, which won final legislative approval Thursday after many years of unsuccessful attempts.
"We are not going anywhere soon,Inch Vikings owner Zygi Wilf stated Thursday evening in a press conference to celebrate the passage of the stadium bill.
The legislation commits the condition to raising $348 million by permitting electronic pull-tabs and bingo in bars and restaurants. You will find also backup funding measures, like a lottery game and luxury-suite taxes.
As the stadium has been built, the Vikings will have their house games in the College of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium. They pays the college $250,000 for every game.
Owner Mark Wilf states the Vikings are wishing to simply take part in the 2015 season in the collegiate stadium, but "it perfectly might be two" seasons.
The Vikings aspire to open their stadium in 2016 and therefore are mulling an offer to host Super Bowl LI in 2017.
Dayton intends to sign the balance in a noon ceremony in the Capitol. Minnesota Vikings proprietors, bill authors and leaders in the labor and world of business is going to be available.
