Owner says Vikings 'have momentum' for stadium project

MINNEAPOLIS -- Vikings owner Zygi Wilf says Minnesota football fans shouldn't be nervous about progress by developers seeking to build a new stadium in Los Angeles.

Wilf says the Vikings "have momentum here" for a project in Arden Hills, the suburb north of Minneapolis where the team wants to put a new stadium. Wilf joined Ramsey County officials after the team's practice in Mankato on Wednesday in touting the project.

The group trying to build in Los Angeles was granted a City Council endorsement Tuesday. The Vikings have entered the final year of their lease at the Metrodome.

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton says the stadium is "still a work in progress" but that "there's still a lot of good will on both sides."
