The Minnesota Timberwolves announced Friday afternoon that, beginning Monday, April 5, they will once again begin safely welcoming season ticket members and fans inside Target Center. The latest development comes on the heels of Governor Tim Walz and the Minnesota Department of Health announcing new guidelines regarding increased capacity for indoor professional sporting events.
In a press release sent out Friday afternoon, Timberwolves and Lynx Chief Executive Officer Ethan Casson confirmed the latest development, saying, “Timberwolves fans are the heartbeat of our organization and we can’t wait to welcome them back to Target Center.” He went on to add that “We’ll continue to work closely with Governor Walz and his team, along with local health officials and the NBA to ensure the protocols are in place to safely bring back our loyal season ticket members and passionate fans beginning on April 5. As we take this exciting step, the health and safety of every single person will remain our top priority.”
Minnesota Timberwolves season ticket members will each receive a pair of complimentary tickets to an April game and have priority access to purchase tickets to the final twelve home games. Season ticket members will receive additional information in the coming days. Fans interested in purchasing single-game tickets may sign up for access today.

So just like that, the Timberwolves (along with the Minnesota Wild and Minnesota Twins), will begin to have fans back in the building this spring, which is a positive sign as our country continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. While the Twins were allotted a maximum of 10,000 fans (due to their stadium being open air), both the Wolves and Wild will host a maximum of 3,000 fans under Minnesota’s latest guidelines.
Have a great and safe weekend, everyone!
