All Vikings fans living in Minnesota can now breathe a long sigh of relief, as the Senate passed the bill today for them to build a new stadium.
This puts the end to all the rumors of them possibly moving to Los Angeles now.
Here’s more from NFL.com:
While there is one last signature to go, Vikings fans can start to celebrate. In fact, they already have. After Thursday’s Senate vote, fans in attendance began to cheer loudly, chanting “Skol Vikings!.” They were told to “talk to it to the hallway” like children acting up at school.
The fans deserve this moment. The Vikings franchise does too. No one wants to see a franchise move, and the Vikings have an incredible tradition in Minnesota. This agreement will remove the spectre or Los Angeles or any possible move. Make no mistake: it’s over.
