Viking Stadium Update: Minneapolis City Council Fully Approves Stadium Bill

On Friday morning, the Minneapolis City Council officially approved the plan put into place for the construction of the new football stadium for the Minnesota Vikings. This is the final hurdle in the process and the question surrounding the Vikings can now be put to rest; the team has a home and it seems they will be there for a while.

On Thursday night, the group met and held the vote that turned out the 7-6 majority in favor of construction of the new stadium. The meeting on Friday was seen as a formality as the vote on Thursday was the biggest hurdle that needed to be jumped.

Now, everyone's attention can turn to the actual construction process.
