Vikings stadium to get more escalators and TVs

June 20, 2014

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to pay for more escalators and more televisions in their under-construction stadium.

The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority approved Friday the $1.3 million increase in design fees, to increase totals from 27 to 33 escalators and 800 to 2,000 televisions. The purchase and installation costs were not included in the $1.3 million figure.

In April, the Vikings agreed to contribute an extra $1.2 million for a bigger video board on the stadium's west end and other related upgrades. The team's share of the $977.5 million project is $479.5 million, which will be fueled by the sale of seat licenses. The Vikings also previously agreed to $26.4 million in contingency funds, some of which could return to the team if construction costs are less than expected.
