2012 Updates[edit]

Gov. Dayton has now passed the bill, we are just waiting on the Mpls City Council to "approve" it, which they pretty much have to. Also, over in the table of contents bar it says "not yet approved" which now needs to be changed. Vanbis01 (talk) 04:24, 13 May 2012 (UTC)


Update needed[edit]

Is there any stadium talks at all anymore? This article needs to be updated. It talks about "progress expected to be made in 2008". Which never seemed to have happened. --Npnunda (talk) 03:50, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Its locked in ambiguity right now. They were hoping for progress with the legislature, but the session ended without anything. The proposal is definitely not dead, but seems to be hibernating, influenced by the economy. --Bobak (talk) 14:44, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
We can update it now. Steelbeard1 (talk) 17:00, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

2010 update needed[edit]

Given the recent news coming out of the MN legislator, an update may be be necessary. Packerfan386 (talk) 07:18, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Rewrite or Delete[edit]

The Vikings announced today that they will build their new stadium in Arden Hills, which means this article is now completely inaccurate. We should either rewrite it or delete it and write a new one. MplsNarco (talk) 21:17, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

that sounds like a good idea Narco. I look forward to reading your new article :) Smith03 (talk) 17:29, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Outdated to the point of being misleading[edit]

The "facts" of this continuing saga are even difficult for news sites to maintain. Changes occur daily, many of which are unsubstantiated rumors and opinions by outsiders to the discussions, or deliberately misleading statements by opposing sides to influence public opinion. The use of the picture is especially misleading, given that as of right now (Feb 2012) there are 4 proposals actively under consideration, each with totally different locations, architecture, and supporting/opposing groups and reasons for and against. Most official discussion is being held privately between the Vikings ownership and the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission, and within the affected political councils (Minneapolis City Council, Ramsey County Commission, and the Minnesota State Legislature.)

Protection[edit]

Why is this indefinitely protected? It has only been protected once since the article was created over five years ago.

Persistant vandlism [1]. Dru of Id (talk) 16:10, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 18 July 2012[edit]

The Vikings will start playing at Vikings Stadium starting in 2016

NetWitz830 (talk) 18:46, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. Ryan Vesey Review me! 13:32, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Protection[edit]

This article is five years old and has been protected only once. Why indefinite? Surely for first time protection, a few days or few weeks would be appropriate. When will the protection be lifted? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.172.214.250 (talk) 18:51, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

The edits prior to the protection consisted of vandalism and virtually no constructive edits. At the same time, there were only a few edits in a span of months. See the history here. I'll request unprotection. Ryan Vesey Review me! 18:53, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

mistake in article[edit]

This article says "Broke Ground in October". This isn't true. They have yet to start building the stadium. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 170.135.176.108 (talk) 10:20, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Renaming of page[edit]

Should this page be relabeled "New Minnesota Stadium": http://www.newminnesotastadium.com Dabullzrule (talk) 02:48, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

No, because the Minnesota Vikings' link to the new stadium at [2] still gives the working name as 'New Vikings Stadium.' Steelbeard1 (talk) 23:57, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

WrestleMania XXXIII?[edit]

Should Vince McMahon bring WrestleMania XXXIII to hosting the event in the Vikings Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.227.243.224 (talk) 05:33, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Name of venue[edit]

Is the official name "Vikings Stadium"? The term "working title" implies the title is undecided at this point. I suppose other tenants are planned for the venue — Preceding unsigned comment added by Presbitow (talkcontribs) 06:09, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

As mentioned above, it's also being referred to as 'New Minnesota Stadium' so until a permanent name is decided upon, whatever the stadium under construction is being called is the working title. Steelbeard1 (talk) 20:01, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Yes, this is the working title. A permanent title would also depend on whether naming rights are sold right away before it opens, or afterwards. Zzyzx11 (talk) 05:57, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
