The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority (MSFA) was established by the legislature in 2012 and charged with the design, construction and operation of the new multi-purpose stadium. The MSFA consists of five members. The new authority is chaired by Michele Kelm-Helgen. The other members are John D. Griffith, Duane Benson, Bill McCarthy and Barbara Butts Williams.
In May 2012, the Minnesota Legislature and the Minneapolis City Council approved funding for the new $975 million multi-purpose stadium to replace the Metrodome. The new stadium is scheduled to open in time for the 2016 NFL season. Click to view legislation.
