MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have wrapped up an agreement with the University of Minnesota to play their home games at TCF Bank Stadium while the new Vikings stadium is being built. And it's going to cost them.
The Vikings will pay the university $250,000 for every game and up to an additional $50,000 in concession and advertising revenue. That could add up to as much as $3 million per season. The university will also keep all parking revenue.
The contract allows for just one night game during the week per season, which will take place late in the year when school is not in session. The Vikings will also pay to add seating and heat the field.
The university's board of regents is expected to approve the contract on Friday.
