One of the most common questions we receive at vikings.com goes something like this: “What’s the latest with the new stadium talks?” It’s a tricky question to answer without knowing how closely the individual asking the question follows the stadium issue.
But now it’ll be much easier for fans to wrap their arms around the stadium issue and closely follow the latest developments. The Vikings, in partnership with thriveOn Creative – a Duluth graphic and digital design company – have launched an all-new version of their grassroots website, www.MinnesotaMomentum.com.
With the 2010 Legislative Session including much discussion surrounding a potential new Vikings stadium, the Vikings improved and re-launched the website in order to educate fans on the current situation, increase engagement by supporters and ultimately push for a stadium solution.
“Our fans have been clear they are looking for ways to be engaged in the Vikings stadium discussions,” said Jeff Anderson, Vikings assistant director of public affairs. “With just twenty games remaining in the Metrodome, they realize the sense of urgency in resolving this issue and ensuring the long-term future of the team in Minnesota. We know we can’t do this without fan support. Because of that, it was important for us to develop a site that allows them to have their voices heard.”
I’ve clicked around the new www.MinnesotaMomentum.com and I recommend you do the same. It’s easy to navigate and it’s also features several interactive features that will ultimately help you stay engaged with this issue.
Tens of thousands of Vikings fans are involved in several grassroots groups – including www.MinnesotaMomentum.com – and that’s a clear indication that public intensity for keeping the Vikings in Minnesota is strong and growing. There is more momentum now for a resolution than I’ve seen during my tenure with the club. Construction costs are down, interest rates are low and many creative financing ideas are being discussed by the Vikings and local legislators. The time is now.
If you want to get involved and stay informed, check out the all-new www.MinnesotaMomentum.com and join the momentum.
