Zygi Wilf

Owner/Chairman

Biography

Zygi Wilf enters his 16th season as Owner/Chairman of the Minnesota Vikings in 2020 and has been instrumental in transforming the organization since the Wilf family purchased the club in 2005. During that time, Wilf and his brother, Mark, have focused on creating a world class organization that consistently competes for championships, provides the best fan experience in the NFL, has a positive impact on the community and grows the game of football.

Two of the biggest organizational achievements – opening U.S. Bank Stadium in 2016 and hosting Super Bowl LII in 2018 – have come under the Wilfs' leadership. As the largest construction project in state history, the new stadium employed nearly 8,000 construction workers and already has had a significant economic impact on the region, sparking nearly 20 development projects and serving as a multi-use facility capable of hosting hundreds of national, international and community events each year. Shortly after breaking ground on the stadium in December 2013, Minnesota defeated New Orleans and Indianapolis in a bid to bring Super Bowl LII to Minnesota in 2018. Wilf served as Honorary Co-Chair of the Minnesota Super Bowl Bid Committee and led a determined campaign focusing on conversations with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and other NFL owners and creating terrific collaboration with Minneapolis business and civic leaders in their efforts. Minnesota hosted the event for the second time, the previous being Super Bowl XXVI on January 26, 1992, and Wilf served as Honorary Co-Chair of the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee.
