Vikings Stadium Update: Shakopee Would Like To Host Stadium

With no definite location set for a potential new Minnesota Vikings Stadium the town of Shakopee is prepared to be a possible stadium site. The town sits approximately 30 miles southwest of downtown Minneapolis and it is expected to have a 4 p.m. press conference Wednesday to announce that they would like to be considered as a possible site for the new stadium:

The newly elected mayor of Shakopee has called a press conference for 4 p.m. Wednesday to proposite a site in his suburb for a new Vikings stadium, according to the Shakopee Valley News.

The report says that the property owner at the undisclosed location has signed a letter of intent to sell the land to the Vikings.

With no definite site for the stadium and possible hidden costs at the new downtown site, the surprise Shakopee site would be a benefit. The Vikings are also still seeking a solution with their lease at the Metrodome officially finished.
