Vikings: Stadium Agreement Allows Seat Licenses

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minnesota Vikings are pushing back against Gov. Mark Dayton after he criticized the team for considering extra fees on season ticket holders to help pay the team’s share of building a new football stadium.

The team’s statement released Tuesday afternoon comes a few hours after Dayton sent a letter to owners Zygi and Mark Wilf stating his opposition to “personal seat licenses.” Dayton says in his letter that what he has called a “People’s Stadium” would become a “Rich People’s Stadium.”

But the Vikings point out seat licenses are authorized under the bill passed by the Legislature and signed by Dayton. The team calls such licenses “a key component of the stadium agreement.”

Other NFL franchises and sports teams have used seat licenses to help pay for new stadiums.
