A deal between the Minnesota Vikings and Ramsey County on financing for a new NFL stadium on the site of the Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant is "imminent," and the team will be holding a press conference with the folks from Ramsey County at 3 PM Central time this afternoon.
Among those in attendance at the press conference will be Vikings' owners Zygi and Mark Wilf. . .significant because the team had no representation at the presser held by the City of Minneapolis yesterday. . .Vikings' coach Leslie Frazier, legendary former Vikings' head coach Bud Grant, legendary former defensive end Jim Marshall, and Ramsey County Commissioners Tony Bennett and Rafael Ortega.
The press conference will be held at the Ramsey County Public Works Facility, which is located at 1425 Paul Kirkwold Drive in St. Paul. No word as of yet as to whether or not the press conference will be streamed online or not, but if it is, there will be something up about it at The Daily Norseman, similar to what was posted for yesterday's Minneapolis press conference.
It appears that the team is finally on the urge of getting something done after years of frustration of trying to get a stadium deal in place. Let's see what the team and Ramsey County have to say about the matter.
