Sports Minneapolis, which is powered by Meet Minneapolis, has launched a raffle for Minnesota sports fans. The price? The Ultimate Sports Ticket – aka a pair of season tickets to all six professional Minnesota teams, six University of Minnesota teams and VIP passes to the X Games Minneapolis 2017.

Entry tickets are $250 each and only 500 entries will be sold. The winning ticket will be drawn on January 28, 2017 and will award access to more than 295 games.

The winner will receive a pair of season tickets to all regular season home games to the Minnesota Twins, Minnesota Vikings, Minnesota Lynx, Minnesota United, Minnesota Timberwolves, the Minnesota Wild, and six University of Minnesota teams (football, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s hockey, and volleyball). Seat locations are at the sole discretion of each team and are based upon availability. Purchase your entry by visiting www.sportsminneapolis.org

Proceeds from the Ultimate Sports Ticket raffle will support the mission of Sports Minneapolis, which is to recruit, enhance and produce sporting events in the Minneapolis area in an effort to benefit the community. Sports Minneapolis recruited 65 events to the Minneapolis area last year, generating over $102 million in economic impact for the community.

Sports Preview

Super Bowl LII: The big game will take place on February 4, 2018 at U.S. Bank Stadium. This will be the second Super Bowl held in Minneapolis, with the last occurring in 1992.

Final Four: Minneapolis will host the Final Four for the fourth time in 2019 at the new Minnesota Multi-Purposes Stadium. Previously, Williams Arena and the Metrodome were the acting venues for this basketball tournament.

X Games: The summer event is moving from Texas to Minnesota for both 2017 and 2018, with Aspen holding the 2017 winter event. U.S. Bank Stadium will host this extreme sporting event.

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.
