Vikings ‘Probably’ Moving If They Don’t Get A New Stadium

Here comes the talk about the Vikings moving to LA again, this time from the latest article about what franchises are worth, and how the Vikings have issues with their lease at the Metrodome.

While scanning Forbes’ list of franchise valuations, one has to get pretty deep to find the Vikings. Vikings owner Zygmunt Wilf’s biggest asset is the termination of his lease at the Metrodome, which expires after the 2011 season. If Wilf does not have an agreement for a new stadium in Minnesota he will probably move the franchise to Los Angeles, where two separate groups want to build new stadiums. Meanwhile, Wilf has been doing everything possible to increase revenue at the 28 year-old Metrodome, such as selling the naming rights to the field to Mall of America and converting the fop floor of an administrative building next to the Metrodome into the Gridiron Club, a 3,800 square-foot high-class sports bar for which members will pay $2,500 a season in addition to the price they pay for Vikings tickets.
