The Vikings will officially become the property of Zygmunt Wilf and his investment group. NFL owners voted 32-0 Wednesday morning to approve the $600 million sale of the Vikings from Red McCombs to Wilf.
The closing date has been set for June 9. Wilf met with Vikings president Gary Woods Wednesday morning to put the finishing touches on the deal, and the owners subsequently approved it at their meeting in Washington, D.C.
Wilf, an East Coast real estate developer, moved into the general partnership of the group after Reggie Fowler's finances came into question within the last two months. In the last few weeks, Wilf, who was initially a limited partner in the Fowler group, has moved into the lead role and is expected to assume at least 30 percent ownership of the Vikings.
At present, the known investors in the Wilf group include Fowler, Alan Landis and David Mandelbaum, along with Mark Wilf (Zygi's brother), Leonard Wilf (Zygi's cousin) and maybe John Wilf (Zygi's son).
