On June 23, it was announced that Opening Day of the 2020 Major League Baseball season is set for either July 23 or 24. The Minnesota Twins will play 60 regular season games under this revised schedule, including 30 home games at Target Field.
However, as mandated by Governor Tim Walz, and aligned with guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Twins will open the 2020 season without the game’s best fans in attendance at Target Field.
This is a decision the Twins unequivocally support. With the full impact of the coronavirus pandemic still unknown, playing in an empty ballpark for now is the best course of action to ensure the continued health, safety and well-being of our fans, partners, players, staff, employees and communities.
As the Twins eagerly anticipate and prepare to welcome our fans back to Target Field in 2021 (or as soon as safely possible), the organization has implemented ticket policies for fans holding tickets to any of the club’s originally-scheduled 81 regular season home games at Target Field in 2020.
