Game 662 | September 9, 2005 | Zygi Wilf
On May 25, 2005, New Jersey developer Zygi Wilf purchased the Vikings from Red McCombs. McCombs had owned the team since 1998. Frustrated with his inability to strike a deal for a new stadium, McCombs announced his intent to sell the team in 2004. McCombs pursued an earlier deal with Arizona businessman Reggie Fowler, but when that deal fell through, Wilf and his family completed the purchase for a reported price of $625 million. Wilf told Dunkers he expected to make additional development investments in the local market.
