Groundbreaking on the new Vikings stadium has been tentatively scheduled for October 2013.

The $975 million stadium will be built on the site where the Metrodome is in downtown Minneapolis. It is scheduled to open in time for the 2016 season.

The next step is choosing a construction manager. The Sports Utility Board says they’re hoping to announce that person on Jan. 25.
