For those of you planning to camp outside the Xcel Energy Center to buy single game tickets to the Wild this season, we offer our humble apologies. We failed to bring you this news as it happened, and someone else may have beaten you to the best spot outside Gate One. For this indiscreation, we will forever feel shame and sorrow.
For everyone else, yesterday, the Wild announced that single game seats will go on sale August 20th, at the Xcel Energy Center Box Office at 9:00AM. Tickets go on sale online, and all other Ticketmaster outlets, at noon. This means you can now snap up your tickets for the Wild vs Coyotes and come and enjoy a Wild Dog and a Premium (leave that dang Bud Light at the counter). Make note that you will be able to, for the first time ever, buy tickets at the Minnesota State Fair Wild booth.
If you want the scoop straight from the Wild, make the jump for the full press release. See you at the games, everyone. (57 days to opening night.)
