Vikings Thiking of a Retractable Roof for New Stadium

Lester Bagley, the Vikings’ point man for a new stadium hinted the team is considering a partially retractable roof.

“It has to be programmed for baseball — college, amateur and high school — as well as soccer and basketball,” Bagley told Bob Sansavere of the the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “All those program elements drive costs. We need to make sure this facility works for our fans and our organization. We have to make sure we get everything with a $975 million budget. It’s a fixed-roof facility, but if we can cut costs, manage costs, our goal is to have a retractable feature (such as a portion of the roof that can be opened to view downtown). Some retractable feature, we think, is important. That’s the one thing we’re working on.”
