The People’s Stadium by the Numbers
No new taxes will be required in Minneapolis or statewide to pay for the stadium. No taxpayer dollars will be taken from the state’s general fund.
The Minnesota Vikings will contribute more than 50% of the construction and operating expenses during the stadium’s life-cycle.
More than 11,000 Minnesotans will be put back to work during the construction of the new stadium.
The new People’s Stadium will be available 355 days a year for public uses, including high school and amateur sports, cultural celebrations and entertainment events.
More than 2,500 bars and restaurants across Minnesota will attract additional customers and provide more charitable gaming with electronic pull-tabs.
The Minnesota Vikings will be required to play in the new stadium for the next 30 years.
According to a Convention, Sports & Leisure (CSL) study, more than $145 million annually will be directed invested into the local economy from the Minnesota Vikings and major league sporting events.
