MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - It was another banner day for the Minnesota Vikings as they held their ribbon-cutting ceremony at the brand new TCO Performance Center.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was on hand along with Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton and Eagan Mayor Mike Maguire. The Wilf family was also in attendance to talk about the growing relationship between the City of Eagan and the Vikings.
"We think Eagan has a great name as it is and the Vikings just add equity to that,” said Mayor Maguire. “It's a successful city. It's why we do big projects like this and the outlet mall. Increasingly, we're becoming a destination for the region, for the nation and for the world."
"I believe this community is going to rally around this type of development, this type of center which everyone will participate in," said Goodell.
“The midnight oil is continually burning here in terms of working on things,” said Mark Wilf, Vikings owner. “Working on potentially a hotel conference center, residential development, retail development, so there's going to be a whole host of development over the next several years, but it takes planning, good partnerships which we're in the process of developing so stay tuned, more to come."
Vikings fans can look forward to training camp being held at the TCO Performance Center as they'll get a firsthand look at the Vikings as they prepare for the 2018 NFL season.
