Vikings chip in extra in final stadium budget


The Vikings have pledged an additional $41.4 million toward the construction of its new stadium after construction bids came in higher than anticipated. 

Out of the additional funds pledged, $26.4 million will come from a line of credit for construction contingencies in order to maintain the stadium's "iconic" design and other features the team deems essential. The Vikings will also absorb $15 million related to playing at TCF Stadium in 2014 and 2015, a cost that was originally included in the construction budget.
