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.

Earlier this month, The Dayton’s Project unveiled the first of several installations in the Dayton’s skyways. The whole development is on schedule to open this spring and will include retail shopping and direct access to the food hall on the lower level.  

 

CWT was recently awarded a $450,000 grant by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, one of only six Minnesota companies selected this year.

The grant comes from the Job Creation Fund, which targets companies that are creating high-paying jobs in the state, while making the needed capital investments to support that growth. CWT is aiming to recruit 75 people over the next three years. It’s currently renovating its leased spaces at 701 Carlson Parkway to make way for the new hires.

 

Minnesota has a bounty of venues that are made for sharing on social media.
