MOST COMMENTED

[MLS EXPANSION] The Minnesota Vikings have secured the 2018 Super Bowl for their new $1 billion stadium expected to open in 2016. Now, they are going after an MLS expansion franchise.

Vikings Vice President Lester Bagley told Star Tribune’s Michael Rand that the NFL club's goal is to secure an MLS club.

Asked if the Super Bowl would take away funds from an MLS team, Bagley responded, "No, I think the Super Bowl proves we can get stuff done. One of the things we intend to get done is secure an MLS franchise. We’ve gone to [Seattle] and met with their ownership and front office. Same thing with Sporting KC, we’re going there next week. We’re continuing our discussions with franchises as well as Commissioner [Don] Garber."

Vikings Stadium will be located on the site of their former home, the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, in Minneapolis. In the meantime, they will play at TCF Bank Stadium.

The NASL's Minnesota United FC has also been working with the baseball Twins on exploring the possibility of building a soccer stadium and seeking an MLS team.
