What is the Target Center?

In the heart of downtown Minneapolis, Target Center stands tall as the proud home of the NBA’s Minnesota Timberwolves and the four-time WNBA world champion Minnesota Lynx. Welcoming over 1 million guests yearly, it’s among the world’s top arenas.

Since its opening in October 1990, Target Center has been owned by the City of Minneapolis and privately managed by ASM Global. The arena proudly bears the Target name, which has been its naming rights partner since day one.

We’ll get the incredible opportunity to explore every part of the Target Center. From its underground areas and inner workings to the food development section, and even up to the highest parts of the building (don’t worry if you’re afraid of heights, that part’s optional). We’re excited to showcase the variety of fantastic jobs available at a venue like the Target Center, from Event Coordinator to Media Technology. Throughout our time there, we’ll chat with professionals and get hands-on experience to dive deep into these roles.
