Target Center is a multi-purpose arena located in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. Target Center hosts major family shows, concerts, sporting events, graduations and private events. Target Corporation is the original and current naming rights partner of the arena. Seating over 20,000 for a concert, it contains 702 club seats and 68 suites.[3]

The arena is home to the NBA's Minnesota Timberwolves[4] and the WNBA's Minnesota Lynx.[5] The facility has also hosted the LFL's Minnesota Valkyrie, the RHI's Minnesota Arctic Blast and the Arena Football League's Minnesota Fighting Pike in the past.

History[edit]

Management[edit]

Original Timberwolves owners Marv Wolfenson and Harvey Ratner built, owned and operated the arena for five years beginning in 1990. The venue was managed by Ogden Entertainment after the city of Minneapolis purchased the arena in 1995.[3] Glen Taylor acquired the Timberwolves in 1994 and the Lynx in 1999.[6]

In 2000, SFX (later Clear Channel Entertainment) took over the contract.[7] The management was changed in May 2004 from Clear Channel to Midwest Entertainment Group, a joint venture of the Timberwolves and Nederlander Concerts.[3]

On May 2, 2007 AEG Facilities assumed the management contract of Target Center. The city of Minneapolis owns the arena and AEG Facilities manages day-to-day operations.[8]

Renovations[edit]

In 2004, Target Center underwent a major renovation that saw the replacement of all 19,006 of its original seats plus the addition of nearly 1,500 new seats as well as the reconfiguration of the lower bowl to make the arena more fan-friendly. In addition the arena's original scoreboard was replaced with a new state-of-the-art 9-by-16 foot video screen and state-of-the-art LED signage, LED signage on the upper deck fascia, a new luxury lounge (Club Cambria) and improved access for fans with disabilities.[9]

Target Center was once one of three NBA arenas with parquet floors, including TD Garden in Boston, and Amway Arena (later Amway Center) in Orlando—the floor was replaced prior to the 2008 NBA season.

Target Center is the first arena to have a green roof. It was unveiled on September 15, 2009.[10] In February 2011, the Timberwolves and the city of Minneapolis introduced a $155 million proposal to remodel the Target Center. Plans included shifting the main entrance to the corner of 6th Street and First Avenue, two large glass atriums, another restaurant, and a complete remodel of the interior.[11] The plan was approved in 2012 by the Minnesota Legislature, as part of the bill that authorized a new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings.[12][13]

On April 3, 2015, the Minneapolis City Council gave the final approval for renovation plans for Target Center. The total cost will be $140 million, which will upgrade the exterior, seats, technology and loading bays, among other areas. The city will contribute $74 million. Glen Taylor, owner of the Timberwolves and Lynx, will pay a total of $60 million; AEG will contribute $5.9 million. As a result, the Timberwolves' lease will run until 2035.[14]The renovated building reopened in October 2017.

Naming rights[edit]

Target extended its naming rights agreement through 2014 in September 2011.[15] In 2012, a "Target Dog" neon sign was installed to face towards Target Field as a home run celebration sign.[16]

Basketball[edit]

It hosted the 1994 NBA All-Star Game, the 1995 NCAA Women's Final Four and the 2000 NBA draft.

In 2011, Target Center played host to its first championship event, the 2011 WNBA Finals. The Minnesota Lynx won their first two games on their home floor, and ultimately won the WNBA Championship, the first title won by a team that played in Target Center.[17]

Ice Hockey[edit]

Target Center hosted 6 neutral site NHL games during the 1993–94 NHL season. The International Hockey League's Minnesota Moose played several of their games at Target Center during their existence from 1994 to 1996. The Boys' State High School Hockey Tournament was held at Target Center in 1998 and 1999. In June 2012, it was announced that the arena would play host to the future NCHC tournament games starting in 2014.[18] The NCHC moved the tournament to the Xcel Energy Center in nearby St. Paul starting in 2018.

The Theater contains a movable floor-to-ceiling curtain system that allows the venue to be transformed based on specific show needs. In addition to concerts, the U.S. Bank Theater can also be used for family and Broadway shows.[23]

Target Center is a block away from the following Metro Transit stations:

The arena is also across the street from the well-known Minneapolis nightclub First Avenue and an entertainment complex known as Block E. Target Field, the home of Major League Baseball's Minnesota Twins, is located just across the street from the Target Center, and shares the public parking that the arena also uses.[24]
