Vikings fans have played a key role toward generating momentum for passage of stadium legislation. With the Minnesota House of Representatives now set to vote on the current proposal on Monday, the ultimate goal is now closer than ever.
The Vikings are urging fans to help make the final push and make the stadium dream a reality.
“The outpouring of support from Vikings fans has greatly intensified over the last several weeks, but it’s crucial that our fans continue to be heard over the weekend,” Vikings Director of Corporate Communications Jeff Anderson said. “Every day we will be asking supporters to email, call, and tweet their State rep and tell them to vote ‘yes’ on Monday. Given that we’ve never been this close, there is absolutely no reason to hold back now.”
Vikings fans can call or email thier Representative to ask them to vote YES on the stadium bill to put thousands of Minnesotans back to work and help secure the Vikings in Minnesota for the next generation of fans. And don’t think your voice won’t be heard.
Minnesotans “are telling me that they want a stadium…a first-class facility that not only will be the home of our beloved Vikings for generations, but also a stadium that is used by the entire state,” Sen. Julie Rosen, chief author of the stadium legislation, told the Star Tribune. “That will attract a Super Bowl, Final Four and provide opportunities for amateur sports, high school sporting events and other organizations.”
