Question though - Will the Vikings be playing there next year or are they getting a new field too?
They want a new stadium, yes. But they don't have one yet.

The Vikings (as was the case with the Twins) are getting screwed via the terms of their lease at the Dump. The team gets no money from luxury boxes and only a small percentage of concessions sales. The Vikings want to tear down the Dump and build a new stadium in its place (they would probably play at TCF Bank Stadium, new home of the Golden Gophers, during construction). But for now they have to stay where they are. Linky
