Zygi Wilf: Stadium Deal Getting Closer To Fruition

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Zygi Wilf says Minnesota Vikings ownership met with state Sens. Julie Rosen and Dave Senjem and feels a stadium “is going to be in the works shortly.”

Wilf met with the legislative leaders on Tuesday morning to discuss the progress the team has made on compiling a package to send to the Legislature for approval. Wilf says both Rosen and Senjem “are very encouraged on the progress we’re making.”

Rosen says they talked about moving the stadium issue forward.

Wilf says the team is still hoping to build the new stadium in the St. Paul suburb of Arden Hills. There has been a push at the Capitol to consider downtown Minneapolis. Wilf says Arden Hills remains his Plan A, but they are considering all options to get a deal done.
