How will I know if my group receives tickets?
- Your group will be contacted via email when tickets become available.
- We do our best to ensure that all participating groups receive tickets at least once throughout the season. However, there is no guarantee that your group will receive tickets.
- Periodically, last minute tickets are donated to us on a game day. On the application please indicate if you can use tickets last minute.
How will my group receive tickets?
The Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx utilizes a paperless ticketing system called Flash Seats and this is the platform in which tickets will be delivered. Flash Seats is an ID-based digital ticketing system that allows guests to enter the game using any credit card, Minnesota driver’s license or by scanning a Mobile ID through the Flash Seats mobile app.
Can I request tickets for a specific game?
We do not guarantee that tickets for the specific game you would like to attend will be available. We do our best to provide tickets based on requests but cannot guarantee availability. If there is a specific game you would like to attend, please include that in the notes section of the application form.
How many tickets can I request at a time?
Please request the number of tickets that your organization will be able to use. We require a 90% utilization of distributed tickets. The staff will track utilization percentages on a group-by-group basis. Those that do not meet this requirement will receive a warning and could be eligible to be removed from the program.
Do I have to apply for the Tickets to Kids program each year?
Even if you have previously completed a Timberwolves or Lynx Tickets for Kids registration form, we ask that you complete a new form at the beginning of every season. This helps us keep all contact information and requests for your organization up to date.
