Vikings To Play Games At University Of Minnesota While Stadium Is Built
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Vikings say the organization has reached a tentative deal with the University of Minnesota on how much the team will pay to use TCF Stadium while a new Vikings stadium is being built.
Vikings spokesman Lester Bagley declined to name a dollar amount, but said the “agreement in principle” would add about 3,000 temporary end zone seats to the 50,000-seat stadium. Bagley says other details need to be resolved before both parties sign off on the deal.
The Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/xnotMv ) says the Vikings paid $1.7 million to play a game at TCF Stadium after the Metrodome roof collapsed in December 2010.
