Vikings Willing to Pay Third of Cost For Outdoor Stadium

The Minnesota Vikings are willing to pick up the tab for one-third of the cost of an open-air downtown stadium to replace the Metrodome, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.

Vikings Vice-President of Public Affairs and Stadium Development Lester Bagley told The Associated Press that there is precedent for this, as the Minnesota Twins picked up a third of the cost for their open-air downtown ballpark, Target Field, which opened last spring.

Sponsors of a bill that would provide public funding for the construction of a new stadium believe that lawmakers would push for a domed stadium that could hold additional events throughout the calendar year.

An outdoor stadium, which would be less expensive than a retractable roof or domed structure, has an estimated cost of $700 million.
