Minnesota Vikings Stadium

The debate related to the construction of a new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings has been going on for several years. Questions related to public subsidies continue to be raised: Is it an appropriate use of public dollars? Where should it be located? Is a new stadium needed? Do the costs outweigh the benefits? What types of funding should be used?

Sources that provide divergent answers to these questions may be found in the Minnesota stadium and arena guides compiled by the Legislative Reference Library. In order to learn about the wealth of resources available on efforts to build a new football stadium, consult our Football Stadiums and the Minnesota Vikings guide. For information on stadium financing in general, use our Financing Professional Sports Facilities guide.

If you would like further information on this or any other topic, contact a librarian at 651-296-8338, or refdesk@lrl.leg.mn.
