In case you haven’t heard, Minnesota United FC begins MLS play in a couple weeks. In a little under a month, they play their first game at their temporary home, TCF Bank Stadium, against fellow expansion side, Atlanta United. There are individual tickets available on the team’s site, but the best deal might be found elsewhere.
The St. Paul Area Chamber of Commerce is holding an online auction for their 149th Annual Meeting, and MNUFC offered up a sweet deal. Make that, a suite deal. The team provided SPACC a package for one of TCF Bank Stadiums suites, including 4 parking passes and 14 tickets.
As of 3:00pm on February 14th, the deal sits without a bid at the entry bid price of $400. The package (which unfortunately does not include food), has a list price of $2,900. Currently, at $400, that is about $28.50 per ticket. While most wouldn’t consider this cheap, that is cheaper than all but a few of the sections currently available online.
Take a look at what a suite looks like at TCF Bank Stadium:
The view is pretty nice, if you’re okay being up high and away from the action a bit.
The post from SPACC does not specify which suite it is, simply saying that the suite is “located between midfield and the goal”. This less-than-helpful description was also given when we reached out to SPACC for more details. So realistically, any one of the 30+ suites TCF offers could be available for this package.
The auction closes Wednesday, February 15th at 7:30pm CST, so you have a day to decide if this is a deal worth taking.
If you have been in a suite at TCF we would love to hear about your experience, maybe that will be the tipping point for us to throw some money together and try to win this bid.
Shortly after posting this article, a bid was placed, but the price is still listed at $400 with $20 incremental bids.
