Vikings Stadium Update: Minnesota Gov. Dayton To Have Signing Ceremony For Bill

After numerous unsuccessful attempts, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton will officially seal the deal on the Minnesota Vikings' new stadium on Monday when he signs the bill into law.

With such a joyous situation, Dayton has already planned a signing ceremony at noon on Monday at the Capitol, as all parties involved continue to breath huge sighs of relief that the $975 million project gained legislative approval this past week. Vikings owners, bill authors, and local business leaders are all expected to be on hand for the ceremony.

The team is expecting to play at neighboring TCF Bank Stadium, home to the Minnesota Gophers, for the 2015 season while the stadium is constructed, but could stick around for two years if there is a developmental snag. The Vikings will reportedly pay the University of Minnesota $250,000 for each game they play at TCF Bank, which is a price tag that could certainly add up pretty quickly. For now, though, fans can relish endlessly in the fact that the Minnesota Vikings are here to stay.
