The $97 million plan includes a $48.5 million contribution from the city, $43 million from the Timberwolves and Lynx, and $5.5 million from AEG.

Eric Roper tweeted out this photo of an informational flier distributed to attendees at today's news conference: As MinnPost reports, the Vikings stadium bill approved by the legislature last year allows Minneapolis to redirect some sales tax revenue to pay for the city's share of the renovation.

The Target Center cost $104 million to build and opened in October 1990.
