Good news for Vikings fans. You aren't getting your team hijacked from you thanks to this stadium deal:


    The Minnesota Vikings have reached a preliminary agreement with Minneapolis and the state of Minnesota on a new stadium, according to a report in the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

    The report, citing multiple sources who spoke Friday on condition of anonymity, said the sides agreed on the division of costs for a $975 million stadium on a site at or near the Metrodome, the Vikings' home since 1982.

    Sources told the Star Tribune the city would pay $150 million in construction costs and roughly $180 million in operating costs over the next 30 years, while the state would pay $398 million and the Vikings would pay $427 million.

    The sources said other details, including cost overruns, still had to be ironed out, but that an announcement was expected next week.


Of course, that's a LOT of taxpayer money going to this stadium. No one ever said keeping you team around would be cheap.
