It’s now Mall of America Field at the Metrodome.

The Minnesota Vikings and Mall of America announced today a partnership for the naming rights to the field at the Dome — just the field. To change the name of the stadium would take a legislative act.

No financial details of the deal were announced. The agreement runs through the end of the 2011 season, when the Vikings’ lease expires at the Dome. You’ll begin to see signs instantly at the Dome touting this partnership.

The announcement comes as the Vikings seek more stadium revenues at the Dome and as their efforts to get a new stadium kick off at the Legislature today.
