Skanska clinches US stadium deal

Swedish construction group Skanska said on Friday it had received an order to build a stadium to be shared by American football teams the New York Jets and the New York Giants.

The deal was worth 7.4 billion kronor (1.05 billion dollars, 814.37 million euros), a Skanska spokesman told AFP.

The agreement to build the 84,000-seater arena was the biggest ever deal for Skanska in the US and the company’s second largest, he added.
