MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings say it’s been 30 great years in the Metrodome, but it’s time for a new stadium.

The team’s lease expires on Feb. 1, which makes it possible that the game against Chicago on Sunday is the last the team will play under the big white top. The Vikings have been working to secure public assistance for a new stadium in Arden Hills, but legislators have asked them to consider sites in downtown Minneapolis, including building on the Dome site, as well.

Vice president Lester Bagley says the team is encouraged by developments at the Capitol aimed at finally getting the team a new facility. He says the urgency has arrived and thinks the deadline of the lease expiring will help get a deal done.
