About Sports Minneapolis

Six professional sports teams. Four distinct seasons. Three major stadiums. Two two-time champions. One sports city: Minneapolis.

If there’s a sport, there’s a spot for it in Minneapolis. At the core of this city beats the heart of a sports fan. Professional teams? We’ve got five. Major collegiate feel? How about the University of Minnesota. Amateur sports complexes? We have the Minneapolis Convention Center and the world’s largest amateur sports and meeting facility. Our passion for sports unites us all, as we’re the #1 city in the nation for volunteering. Even our light rail system connects every major sports venue. Frozen ponds or green grass, sports march on. That’s why we’re the City by Nature. Our seasons change, but our love of sport never fades, which is why you won’t find anyone as committed to the success of an event as Sports Minneapolis.

The mission of Sports Minneapolis is to recruit, enhance and produce sporting events in the Minneapolis area for the benefit of our community.  We do this by partnering with event rights holders to assist them with venue selection, event services, volunteer identification, marketing and promotional support, and on-site recognition opportunities in order to assure a successful event.
