Vikings Stadium: Architect To Be Named Soon

The Minnesota Vikings have been dealing with stadium issues for quite some time, but it seems as though they're pretty close to moving to the next step. That step, for those not in the know, would be selecting the architect they want designing the new stadium, which is expected to be ready for the 2016 season.

The choice of an architect is the most important decision the team will make according to Vikings team president Lester Bagley via the Pioneer Press:

The most important decision the Minnesota Vikings have to make about their new stadium could be selecting the architect, team president Lester Bagley said Thursday, Sept. 20, and the team is expected to do that within the next two weeks.

The Vikings have budgeted $975 million for the project and will rely on the new architect to decide what features are feasible within that budget. The most important feature would seem to be whether or not the new stadium will have a retractable roof.
