Go Minnesota
The Twin Cities are home the Vikings (NFL), Twins (MLB), Timberwolves (NBA) and the Wild (NHL).

Arrow The Minnesota Vikings play their home games at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, a 65,000 seat stadium in downtown Minneapolis. The Vikings will open a new stadium on the same site in 2016.

Arrow The Minnesota Twins opened the Twin Cities' newest stadium, Target Field, in 2010.

Arrow Target Center (downtown Minneapolis) and Xcel Energy Center (downtown St. Paul) both seat over 19,000 spectators and host hundreds of sporting events and concerts each year.

Arrow The Twin Cities have hosted a Super Bowl, multiple World Series and NCAA Final Fours, professional golf tournaments and playoffs in the NFL, NHL, NBA and MLB.

Arrow The Twin Cities also play host to professional soccer, women’s basketball, lacrosse and minor league baseball.
