Ross talks to Fox 9 News regarding Vikings stadium site decisions

Ross20030617.jpgDr. Stephen Ross, School of Kinesiology director of undergraduate programs and associate professor of sport management, was recently interviewed on Fox 9 news regarding the ongoing debate about location of a new Minnesota Vikings stadium.

Supporters of city stadiums, like those in Minneapolis, argue the benefits of existing transportation and hotels as well as adding to the urban core. But team owners often have a different agenda.

Ross says more land for parking and development makes an area like Arden Hills very appealing to owners like the Wilfs.

"When you're locked into a smaller footprint and you don't have as much control in the surrounding area, you can't do that type of thing," Ross said in the interview.
