Cheer for your Favorite Professional Sports Teams in Minnesota

Skol Vikings. The four-time Super Bowl participants are back to playing dome football and they’re ready to compete with the rest of the NFC North so go see Harrison Smith, Stefon Diggs, Xavier Rhodes and the rest of one of the popular teams in the NFL. The two-time World Series Champion Twins are seldom not competitive, and they provide an acclaimed stadium experience.

Go out to Target Field and cheer on Miguel Sano, Ervin Santana, and the rest of the Twinkies. If you find yourself in downtown Minneapolis in basketball season, go see Jimmy Butler, Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns, and the rest of the Timberwolves. See Maya Moore and the 4-time WNBA Champion Lynx.

Hockey fans who find themselves in St. Paul must go see a Wild game and, aside from the action, see the wall featuring a hockey jersey from every high school in Minnesota. See Mikko Koivu and the rest of the Wild this season.

Minnesota Pro Baseball

The Twinkies

As the harsh Minnesota winter begins to fade, the Twin Cities and surrounding communities are getting ready to enjoy outdoors and enjoy the sunshine.

And what better way to enjoy the mild temperatures than with a day at the ballpark?

The Minnesota Twins, getting their namesake from the "Twin Cities" of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, are a mainstay attraction in the Gopher State.

Founded in 1961, the Twins are one of the oldest professional sports teams in the state, and have the history and championship pedigree to boot.

Each and every summer, the Twins play 81 home games at Target Field in downtown Minneapolis from April to September.

Take in a ball game, and be sure to explore some of the sights, like Stone Arch Bridge, the Foshay Museum, and the Guthrie Theater before or after the game – there are many must-see attractions within walking distance of the stadium, and the weather will likely call for some bipedal exploration.

Back to baseball – Target Field is no stranger to fans making the short journey from nearby communities like Saint Paul, Bloomington, Plymouth, and Brooklyn Center. Be sure and don some navy blue and red, and help the Twinkies win another American League Pennant, or hopefully another World Series this coming fall.

 

Minnesota Pro Basketball

The T-Wolves & Lynx

This winter, escape the downpour of thick Minnesota snow and catch the pro basketball teams of the Twin Cities light up the hardwood.

Although relatively young, the Minnesota Timberwolves of the NBA have become one of the staple attractions here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

Established in 1989, the T-Wolves have played home games at the Target Center since 1990.

Found in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, the Target Center is only minutes away from nearby communities like Bloomington, Plymouth, and Brooklyn Center, and just across the Mississippi River from Saint Paul.

Join the Wolves faithful and Crunch the Wolf this season and help the Timberwolves make another run at the NBA's Western Conference playoffs. The Wolves play 41 home games from late October to mid-April.

When the men are done for the season, it’s time for the ladies to take to the court and show their stuff.

Founded in 1999, the Minnesota Lynx have quickly become a dominant force in the WNBA, winning multiple WNBA Championships and Western Conference titles. And like their NBA counterparts, the Lynx play their home games at Target Center as well.

The Lynx run the hardwood from May through September, so no matter what time of year you visit, you’ll have plenty of thrilling basketball action to choose from.

Minnesota Pro Football

The Purple People Eaters

When you hear the famous Vikings Gjallarhorn, you know you’re in the Twin Cities, home to the Minnesota Vikings.

Having been founded in 1961, the Vikings are tied with the Minnesota Twins as the longest-running professional sports team in the Gopher State, and are perhaps the most decorated.

By the numbers, the Purple and Gold are one of the most competitive football teams in NFL history.

The Vikings hold multiple NFC Championships, over 15 NFC Central and NFC North titles, and the distinction of former NFL Champions.

Each fall, Vikings fans from as far as Eden Prairie, Plymouth, and Bloomington flock to TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis to help cheer on the Vikings as they take on their longtime rivals, the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears.

The Vikings will be calling TCF Bank Stadium, located on the beautiful University of Minnesota campus, home for a short time while their own state-of-the-art stadium is being constructed. U.S. Bank Stadium is set to open its doors in 2016, so be sure to experience the thrill of outdoor NFL football while you can.

Don’t forget to pack your Helga Hat, purple and gold, and maybe a winter coat or two, as you help Ragnar cheer on the Purple People Eaters this football season. The Vikings take the field from early September to early January.

Minnesota Pro Hockey

The Wild in the West

Each winter, the Land of 10,000 Lakes becomes the Land of 10,000 Rinks. So naturally, Minnesotans love their ice hockey – a staple sport in the Midwest.

As such, Minnesota has a longstanding history of professional hockey. After the departure of the Minnesota North Stars, the state quickly made the move to establish the current NHL team – the Minnesota Wild – in 1997.

Donning a unique combination of red, forest green, gold, wheat, and white, the Wild have become fan-favorites throughout the Twin Cities metro area.

Plus, the Wild have the distinction of being the only Minnesota sports team east of the Mississippi River – the Wild play home games at the Xcel Energy Arena in Saint Paul.

Of course, that hasn’t stopped hockey fans from nearby Minneapolis, Bloomington, and Oakdale from making the short journey to cheer on their favorite team. You, too, are invited to witness the action.

Pack your Wild colors and join Nordy, the official team mascot, and help the Wild make a run at the NHL's Western Conference playoffs this fall.
