The Vikings and Owner/Chairman Zygi Wilf are very pleased with today’s discussion with Governor Dayton. We are appreciative of the Governor’s willingness to move the issue forward this fall and the interest by legislative leaders to work collaboratively with all parties toward a final solution.
As we knew the Governor would be making a statement to the media this afternoon following the conclusion of his various stadium-related meetings, we felt we should withhold comment, out of respect to the Governor, until he spoke to the media first.
Today’s constructive conversation was a continuation of several positive stadium developments in the last few days. The Vikings are committed to doing whatever we can, along with our local partner Ramsey County, the Legislature, Governor, our fans and the citizens of Minnesota to finalize a viable stadium proposal and begin construction as quickly as possible.
— From a press release sent out by the Minnesota Vikings via Director of Corporate Communications Jeff Anderson (@andersonj on Twitter) If we can find more details on today's meeting between the Governor and the team, we'll pass them along to you.
