After 10 long years, the Vikings finally have a deal for a new stadium. It took a serious effort from all sides, but one of the NFL’s storied franchises is staying in Minneapolis.

That doesn’t mean this process is over. Far from it. As stadium guru Lester Bagley told me in a recent visit to Eden Prairie, Minn., it’s only the beginning.

There are decisions to be made, plans to collect, architects to choose… and a bunch of other things. For instance, will an MLS team join the Vikes in the stadium, too?

Now we can move on to the exciting part,” Bagley told me. “That’s to design and build a first-class facility that everyone can be proud of, that can work for everybody and be unique to our state.”
