The Vikings are another step closer to staying in Minnesota. Governor Mark Dayton has signed off on a bill that will fund a new stadium for the team. The 975-million-dollar project won final legislative approval last Thursday.
The Minneapolis City Council still has to approve the bill. The new fixed-roof stadium will sit on the current site of the Metrodome, where the Vikings have played since 1982. The Vikings hope to open the stadium for the 2016 season.
