The Minnesota Vikings are contributing another $1.2 million to the new stadium to put in a bigger video board on the facility's west end and for other video-related upgrades.
The funding was approved Friday by the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority. It brings the total cost of the project from $975 million to $976.2 million.
The team had initially agreed to contribute $477 million to the project. In November, the Vikings agreed to put up $26.4 million in contingency funds. Some of those funds could go back to the team if construction costs are less than expected.
The $1.2 million is in addition to the contingency funds. The Vikings are still depending on seat license sales to cover their full contribution.
The stadium is scheduled to open in 2016.
