Minnesota Vikings Stadium Deal Imminent, According To Report

The Minnesota Vikings stadium has been a hot topic of discussion over the past year or so, but it seems things may be moving in the right direction. That statement depends on who one decides to believe, of course, but reports have recently surfaced calling the deal "imminent."

There's nothing officially happening quite yet, but the Star Tribune says that there was a conference call held Thursday to discuss an imminent deal that could be announced as soon as Friday.

A deal to build a Minnesota Vikings stadium next to the Metrodome neared completion Thursday, as stadium planners worked late to put the finishing touches on an agreement among the state, the team and Minneapolis.

Even a signed deal, however, still must win the support of many legislators and Minneapolis City Council members who are reluctant to commit hundreds of millions in public funding to a sports entertainment project costing at least $900 million.

There still seem to be plenty of folks against the deal, but an agreement between Minnesota, the Vikings and Minneapolis would seem to be a good start in making things happen.
