Minnesota Twins unveil plans for multi-level centre field gathering spaces at Target Field

The Minnesota Twins have unveiled plans to reconfigure Target Field’s centre field seating area into multi-level fan gathering spaces, featuring great sightlines, as well as signature food and beverage options. The enhancements will be the most extensive renovations at Target Field to date and are designed to activate and energise a previously underutilised portion of the Ballpark.

Twins President, Dave St. Peter, said:

The Twins are committed to continually improving Target Field with a focus on delivering the best fan experience in professional sports. We’re excited to unveil these unique spaces to our fans with a belief that they make the ballpark better.

The upper level (Club Level) will be named Minnie & Paul’s and will be open to all fans. Minnie & Paul’s, a Twins-themed pub located under the Ballpark’s iconic centre field celebration sign, will also feature Minnesota-branded food options, while serving as a stylish gathering space for fans of all ages.

The lower tier (Mezzanine Level) will be known as CATCH, an intimate all-inclusive club with limited access for approximately 120 season ticket members. The exclusive CATCH level will feature great views of the field, unparalleled access to the latest technology and a vibrant entertainment experience. This new premium space will be all-inclusive with beverages and a variety of tapas-style foods included in the season ticket price. Season ticket per-game prices for CATCH will range from USD$75 to $85.

Mike Clough, Vice President of Ticket Sales and Service for the Twins, said:

We’re thrilled to introduce this new and exclusive venue within the Ballpark. We are confident our season ticket holders will enjoy the intimate atmosphere and abundant amenities. Members of CATCH will enjoy its all-inclusive menu and great views of the game while enjoying the high end club experience in this vibrant environment.

The renovations will be completed prior to the 2016 season and will become a destination for Twins fans and a popular location for events, private functions and meetings year-round. The Minnesota-branded food options within Minnie & Paul’s will be announced at the 2016 Target Field Food and Beverage Preview.
