Minnesota Plans $468 Million Vikings Stadium Bond Sale Next Week

Minnesota plans to sell $468 million of bonds on Jan. 27 to help finance a new stadium for the National Football League’s Vikings, said John Pollard, a spokesman at the state’s management and budget office.

The borrowing, initially scheduled for last week, was delayed because of a lawsuit filed by three Minneapolis residents on Jan. 10. The state’s top court threw out the challenge this week, and Minnesota released updated offering documents yesterday.
