49ers, Vikings Stadium Financing Update: NFL Financing

A couple days ago I posted about how the NFL was supposedly close to announcing something in regards to financing for the Minnesota Vikings stadium project. There have been some issues as to how much the state would pitch in and the NFL is looking at ways to help. I was a bit concerned about the supposed announcement because we all know the 49ers have serious issues ahead of them when it comes to financing their own stadium.

Well, the good news (sort of) is that the 49ers are in basically the same boat as the Vikings:

"It is the same assurance that any team has, which is that the clubs will consider requests by a team for a club-seat waiver in which a portion of club-seat revenue that goes to the visiting team sharing pool instead is used toward stadium construction financing for a period of time," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said. "Each request is reviewed on a case-by-case basis and must be approved by a three-fourths vote of the clubs."

I'm not quite sure how many teams have requested approval or been denied, but I have to think most teams recognize the value of new stadiums. More revenue for one team benefits the league as a whole. Of course, this is all contingent on getting a new CBA done so the G3 fund can be figured out. Fingers crossed for one more reason!
