See a live football game without having to sit in the cold by settling yourself in the dome of U.S. Bank Stadium, home of the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings. If baseball’s your game and you prefer the open air, take in a Minnesota Twins game at Target Field in downtown Minneapolis. If you want to take the family to see a ball game but you don’t want to pay Major League prices, then go to CHS Field.

See a basketball game for the NBA’s Minnesota Timberwolves or the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx, or go see a concert at Target Center. Watch a game at TCF Bank Stadium; home of the Gophers of the University of Minnesota.

Catch the Minnesota Wild, the NLL’s Minnesota Swarm, lacrosse games, plus tons of live concerts at the multipurpose XCEL Energy Center that seats up to 18,000 people. The Sanford Center plays host to Bemidji Axemen and Bemidji State University Beaver’s hockey teams.
