MN United seeking tax breaks for proposed Minneapolis MLS stadium

Today, Minnesota United FC owner Bill McGuire met with Gov. Mark Dayton and legislative leaders regarding the financing of a proposed downtown Minneapolis MLS stadium.

Fox 9's Tim Blotz tweeted out some key details from McGuire's meeting with Dayton following the governor's press availability earlier today:

The Star Tribune, citing data from the Department of Revenue, reports that the new Vikings stadium and Target Field both received similar tax exceptions.

Dayton told reporters he plans to meet with officials from Minneapolis and Hennepin County before making any commitments to the United, as those entities will be most directly affected by any tax breaks the team receives.
