Wild to host 3,000 fans at games starting in April

The Minnesota Wild are preparing to host 3,000 fans at Xcel Energy Center starting next month.

After Gov. Tim Walz’s announcement regarding the loosening of COVID-19 restrictions on Friday, the Wild said it will welcome 3,000 fans to Xcel Energy Center starting on April 5, when the Colorado Avalanche are in town.

"We can’t wait to welcome more fans to watch Minnesota Wild games at Xcel Energy Center starting April 5," Wild President Matt Majka said. "Our organization has spent a tremendous amount of time and energy working in collaboration with Governor Walz and his staff, the Minnesota Department of Health as well as the other professional sports teams in town to make sure the protocols we have in place will allow our passionate fans the ability to watch Wild games in a safe and enjoyable manner. We have truly missed the energy and excitement our fans bring to Xcel Energy Center."
