Vikings Owner “Optimistic” About New Stadium

Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf said Wednesday he was “optimistic” that the team could agree on a new stadium at the Metrodome site, although the Vikings at least publicly held out hope that the project could still be built in Ramsey County according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

That was a change in tone from earlier in the week, when Vikings officials described themselves as “frustrated” over being told by state officials that only the Metrodome was considered a viable site.

With Gov. Mark Dayton trying to shepherd the Vikings and Minneapolis toward a new $918 million stadium at the Metrodome, city officials and key legislators met with Wilf and Dayton for three hours Wednesday. Afterward they announced they had made progress but came to no agreement.
