Summer Sports in the Twin Cities

Plus Homerun-Worthy Deals!

Summer is here, and that means one thing: It is time to get outside and cheer on your favorite Minnesota teams! Here are some favorite local sports teams you can watch outside in the Twin Cities this summer—plus, exclusive discounts for AAA members.

Minnesota United FC

The Minnesota United Football Club (FC) is the Twin Cities’ local professional men’s soccer club, and the team awes fans at the newly built Allianz Field in St. Paul. Sustainably designed to minimize environmental impact, Allianz Field recycles approximately 2 million gallons of rainwater every year. The team’s name is a nod to the Minnesota state bird—the Loons—and the logo features a loon with eleven feathers to represent each player on the field. The energy in the stadium on game days is electric, and after every home victory, fans join together to sing “Wonderwall” by Oasis, while waving their MN United scarves in the air.

Take advantage of a special AAA discount for select MNUFC games at Allianz Field this season! Tickets are available while supplies last.

St. Paul Saints

Providing family entertainment in the Twin Cities since 1993, the St. Paul Saints Baseball Club is St. Paul’s very own minor league team. Partly owned by comedian Bill Murray and known for its outlandish promotions, the Saints are the only team in baseball with a live pig as its mascot and an 80-year-old nun who gives massages in the stands. This year, the Saints are celebrating their “30th Season of Fun” with a packed promotional schedule, including the world’s largest game of catch. The 150-game season began in early April and runs through September 28.

AAA members can purchase St. Paul Saints outfield reserve tickets for $17, plus receive a Saints hat at select games.

Minnesota Twins

Named after the Twin Cities—Minneapolis and St. Paul—the Minnesota Twins serve as the state’s Major League Baseball (MLB) team. Home of the Minnesota Twins, Target Field is one of the most impressive stadiums in the league, boasting four prominent bars and restaurants and concessions featuring Minnesotafavorites (think wild rice, walleye, and several foods on a stick in a nod to the State Fair).

The Minnesota Twins and AAA Minneapolis have teamed up to offer discounted tickets to AAA members and friends at select Twins games starting in May 2022!
