New NFL ‘Stadium Loan Program’ Could Help Vikings

More Vikings

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — NFL owners adopted a revised “stadium loan program” on Wednesday that could provide up to $200 million for a new Minnesota Vikings stadium.

Team owner Zygi Wilf has pledged that the Vikings could contribute $425 million toward a new stadium.

Back in October, when NFL officials visited the State Capitol, they said the program would probably provide around $150 million. But it’s not clear if these changes would bump that up.

The new NFL loan program is based on how much the total cost of the stadium would be. The Vikings are hoping to build on the Arden Hills site. A stadium there would cost more than a billion dollars.
