Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority
The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority was created by the legislature in 2012 to design and construct a new Minnesota Multi-Purpose stadium.
In May 2012, the Minnesota Legislature and the Minneapolis City Council approved funding for the new $975 million multi-purpose stadium to replace the Metrodome. In May of 2013, the MSFA, the Minnesota Vikings, and HKS Sports and Entertainment unveiled the stunning new design of the stadium.
Construction of the new stadium will take about 4.3 million work hours and create 7,500 construction jobs. The Minnesota Vikings will play two seasons at the University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium while the new stadium is constructed.
The new stadium will host Super Bowl 52 in 2018 and the NCAA Men’s Final Four in 2019.
The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority (MSFA), which owned the Metrodome, will own and operate the new stadium.
