Minnesota Sports Fans Can Watch Events Soon
Minnesota Twins fans can watch the home opener against Seattle on April 8. The Twins played the 2020 season without any fans in the stands. According to Twins CEO and President Dave St. Peter, the announcement was a significant milestone. Also, they are happy to welcome the Twins fans back into the ballpark.
Based on the state’s guidelines, 10,000 fans can watch baseball games at Target Field in April. Season ticket holders will have priority access to tickets. Also, the remaining tickets will be available to the general public on a month-by-month basis.
Minnesota Wild organization is also happy with the announcement. Based on the guidelines, 3,000 fans can watch the games inside the Xcel Energy Center beginning on April 5. Also, they will make sure that health protocols are in place to allow fans to witness games live.
However, it is still unlikely that you can start a bookie business in the state. Tribal nations opposed the legalization of sports betting in the state. Also, the odds of becoming a profitable player are slim in Minnesota. You can try your luck in other states where legal sports betting is available.
