MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Wild announced Tuesday that single-game tickets for the 2021-22 season will go on sale at 10 .m. Saturday through Ticketmaster and at the Xcel Energy Center box office.
After starting last season with no fans and eventually having limited fan capacity due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the team plans to have full fan capacity at the start of the 2021-22 season. The Wild’s home opener is set for Tuesday, Oct. 19, against the Winnipeg Jets.
It's a new era for the franchise as the team bought out the contracts of veterans Zach Parise and Ryan Suter in the offseason. Wild fans are also awaiting the possible news of a new contract for Kirill Kaprizov, who won the Calder Trophy last season after leading the Wild in goals and points.
The Wild’s 2021-22 home schedule features 20 weekend games, with four on Fridays, nine on Saturdays and seven on Sundays. In accordance with COVID-19 guidelines, all tickets for the season will be digital. All payments for concessions, retail items and parking will be done via credit card or mobile payments (Apple Pay, Google Pay). Cash will not be accepted at Xcel Energy Center for the 2021-22 season.
The Wild will also host the St. Louis Blues on New Year’s Day 2022 for the NHL Winter Classic at Target Field. The team will release ticket information for the event at a later date.
