Star Tribune Sports - Fri, 08/22/2014 - 22:19
Jilted fans didn’t deny Kevin Love’s talent, but they grew cool to his agendaI just think that they need to realize that I love being here. I don’t know where the misconception came along, but I love this team. I love this organization, and somewhere along the line it went the other way. I think that wholeheartedly they need to realize that I do want to be here.” — Kevin Love, February 2013

Vikings commit another $46.1 million to new stadium

Star Tribune Sports - Fri, 08/22/2014 - 10:17
The Vikings and the Wilf family announced this morning that they have agreed to commit an additional private contribution of $46.1 million toward the new stadium. With that commitment, the Vikings have now offered up a total of $49 million in additional contributions since November. The additional money, which was promised to the Minnesota Sports Facility Authority at a meeting today, pushes the total private contributions from the team from $477 million to about $526 million. The new money will go into the overall stadium budget and will ensure that amenities such as the five pivoting glass doors, elevators, escalators and acoustical treatments remain in the project. “It is critical that the original stadium design unveiled in 2013 is delivered to the public when the new stadium opens in 2016,” said Vikings owner Mark Wilf. “Our goal is to provide the best game day experience possible for our fans and for everyone in Minnesota who uses the stadium. We strongly believed eliminating significant items that contribute to that fan experience was not an option.” The public contribution toward the project remains at $498 million, the team said. “The Vikings have made a significant contribution to the stadium budget, which allows us to maintain the original design to ensure the stadium is the most iconic, world-class stadium in the country and perhaps the world,” said MSFA Chair Michele Kelm-Helgen. “The team stepping up to make this contribution was instrumental in helping to solve our budget gap.”
