The Minnesota Vikings say the team is working on extending its contract to hold training camp in Mankato.
The Vikings and the city are in the final year of a 4-year contract with the city as the team settles into its 47th training camp in Mankato. Team spokesman Jeff Anderson says the Vikings are happy with the relationship with Minnesota State University.
The MSU finance administrator says the university receives about $100,000 from the team for hosting training camp. Area businesses also reap the benefits of having the Vikings players and fans in town.
Winona Radio is hosting a day-trip by bus August 14th to Mankato for Fan Appreciation Day to watch the Vikings practice. For more information on how to sign up call 452-4000 or go online at www.winonaradio.com.
