MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Fan who want a piece of Metrodome history can now buy the stadium’s bright-blue seats.
The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority said Friday that Albrecht Sign Co. of Fridley was awarded the contract to remove and sell the dome’s seats.
The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1dIMZ2O) reports Albrecht will remove more than 60,000 of the stadium’s seats. The company will sell seats in sets of three to six to the public for $60 a seat.
Non-profit groups and community organizations will be charged $40 a seat.
Anyone requesting a specific seat will be charged $80 a seat.
The seats will be removed by Jan. 18, when the power will be turned off at the Metrodome and its roof deflated.
