    Friday is D Day for our new stadium Deal here is how you can Help


    Please take a few moments and contact the Minneapolis City Council asking for their support and yes vote on Thursday and Friday. If your schedule allows please plan on being at Minneapolis City Hall on Thursday May 24th at 10am for the Intergovernmental Relations committee and then for the City Council meeting on the bill, Friday at 9:30am for their vote.

    Minneapolis City Hall
    350 South 5thSt
    Minneapolis, MN 55415

    Currently we have seven City Council members who have committed to voting for the Vikings bill. Fans should contact them thanking them for their support.

    If you would like to send one email to all of the Council members you can copy and paste the email addresses below into your email editor:

    Here are a few talking points to consider:

    There are no new taxes imposed on the City of Minneapolis
    The Convention Center tax that will be utilized is a State tax, not a City tax
    As part of the negotiated package, the Target Center will come off of City payroll which will lower property taxes for Minneapolis residents
    The new stadium will be used all year round for events which will help support the $1 Billion Hospitality industry in Minneapolis

    It’s important we finish strong; we don’t want to overlook the Minneapolis City Council! Please reach out to its members and ask your friends to do the same! Two votes of approval by Minneapolis turn our stadium dreams into reality!
