Colts Owner: 'Urgent' Need For New Stadium In Minnesota

Colts' owner Jim Irsay believes that the Vikings are in dire need of a new stadium, according to Pioneer Press.

"I think the key thing is, it is urgent," Irsay said of Minnesota's need for a new stadium. "They simply can't remain in this facility. It's not possible."

Vikings' co-owner Lenny Wilf and several team vice presidents visited Indianapolis late last week to tour the Colts' new stadium and came away impressed.

"They did a nice job with the stadium," Wilf said of Lucas Oil Stadium.

"The state does need a big indoor facility," Wilf added. "The Metrodome has served the state well during its time. But it is not a 21st century facility."
