Also of note, the Vikings just signed SMG Stadium Management to a 10-year contract to run the operations of the new stadium:

SMG is one of the largest venue operators in the country with a portfolio that includes the SuperDome. They also were once Jacksonville's preferred stadium operator to multiple venues in the city that some shady spending by SMG led to a bit of an issue:

Good to see the Wilfs doing their part to make this stadium the best they can via extra contributions. I bet had Red McCombs gotten the stadium that he wouldn't keep increasing his contribution. Just another sign of our current owners being good owners who "get it".
