Ted Mondale, who heads the new Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority that will oversee the new Vikings stadium on the site of the Metrodome, said one of the undecided questions about the stadium is whether the Vikings will continue to play in the Dome in 2014 or at the Gophers'
TCF Bank Stadium that year.
Although the plan six months ago was to play one season (2015) at the Gophers' stadium, there is now a chance the Vikings could end up playing two seasons there. A decision is expected next spring.

If the Vikings were to play an additional season at TCF Bank Stadium, the Gophers would net an additional $3,000,000 ($6,000,000 total over two seasons). In addition to the extra money, with two seasons to be played in the stadium, there is a greater chance that the Vikings would put in additional permanent seating.
