MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Fan who want a piece of Metrodome history can now buy the stadium's bright-blue seats.


Michele Kelm-Helgen, chair of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, tells the Star Tribune an agreement was to be signed Friday with a Fridley firm to begin removing the dome's seats.

More than 60,000 of the stadium's seats will be removed by Albrecht Sign Co. 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.
