MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton says he will fight any effort by the Vikings to charge fans extra fees to buy season tickets in the new publicly subsidized football stadium.
In a sharply worded letter Tuesday, Dayton told team owner Zygi Wilf that he is distressed by reports the team may charge seat license fees to help generate money for the stadium. Dayton says he will urge a public authority to block any such move.
The team is due to pay slightly more than half of the $975 million price tag. Dayton told Wilf that the contribution is the responsibility of team owners, not fans.
The governor has long pushed for what he calls a ``People's Stadium.'' He says he won't let the result be a ``Rich People's Stadium.''
