About Minnesota Timberwolves
The Minnesota Timberwolves completed a successful 2017-18 season that included a return to the NBA playoffs. Off the court, the team grew in nearly every area of the business, notably a 15% year-over-year increase in attendance, 16 regular season home game sellouts which accounted for the most in a season since the 1991-92 season, and a 20% increase in the full season ticket base, putting the team in the top 10 in the NBA in new full season tickets sold. The team also set an all-time franchise record in partial season ticket plans, group tickets and suite rentals, and were either sold out or at a 90+% capacity in every premium space. Television ratings increased 78% year-over-year, the third highest YOY increase in the league, and merchandise sales were up 70%, fueled by the team’s new branding and new relationship with Nike. Other new partnerships with Fitbit, Anheuser-Busch and Hy-Vee aided in a 25% increase in corporate partnerships. Prior to the start of the season, the team completed a $150 million renovation of Target Center, which was a nominee for Sports Facility of the Year at the Sports Business Journal Awards and was named a Top Project of 2017 by Finance & Commerce.
