Vikings Owner/Chairman Zygi Wilf was inducted to the Cambria Sport Business Hall of Fame at Minnesota State University, Mankato, the school announced on Thursday.
Wilf was recognized with a framed photo accompanied with a description that cited his "dedication to providing a world-class showcase for Minnesota's sporting future" that will be displayed at the school.
Established in 2010, the Cambria Sport Business Hall of Fame was created to "honor, preserve and perpetuate the names of outstanding accomplishments of sport business leaders who, through their work, have made a significant contribution to the sport industry."
"We're proud of the long relationship and partnership between MSU and the Vikings, now entering our 50th training camp this summer. Congratulations to Zygi and the Wilf Family on the hall of fame induction and their contributions to sports business in Minnesota," said Dr. Richard Davenport, MSU President.
The Wilf family became owners of the Vikings in 2005 when NFL owners unanimously approved their purchase of the franchise and have led the way on the new Vikings stadium that is scheduled for completion in July 2016.
