Final pacts on Minn. Vikings stadium not ready yet

Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Two critical agreements governing the new Minnesota Vikings stadium remain open to negotiation between the team and the public authority that will run the facility.

The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority postponed a planned Friday meeting where the development agreement and the stadium lease were to be considered. The meeting was put off by a week. The deliberations involve some senior Vikings officials now in London for the team's high-profile game this Sunday. A few team officials stayed back to consult on the pacts in person.

One prominent point is the number of seats covered by personal seat licenses that require an upfront fee from season ticketholders besides the usual admissions price.

The team is expected to commit to a lease of 30 years or longer.

Groundbreaking is expected in November.
