As part of the Target Center Renovation, fans will have brand new seats to sit in starting with the 2017-18 Timberwolves season. Along with the new seats, there will also be new railings.
This was made possible thanks to an addition $9-$12 million that owner Glen Taylor contributed to the renovation project.
These additions, plus the original project improvements, will help accomplish the project’s ultimate goal of greatly improving the fan experience for all Target Center events heading into the Timberwolves 2017-18 season.
The additional funding will bring the total Target Center renovation project to between $138 and $141 million. The public contribution remains unchanged.
“One of the original objectives we had with this renovation was we wanted to ensure it was a transformational renovation,” Chief Strategy Officer Ted Johnson said. “We weren’t interested in putting band-aids on things and making little tweaks. We wanted this to be a significant transformation.”
When more information on the new seats is available, we will have further updates.
