Target Field introduces family-friendly pricing

Target Field in Minnesota is the latest North American sports venue to introduce family-friendly concession pricing. Delaware North Sportservice, the stadium’s concessionaire, along with the Minnesota Twins have introduced a new pricing scheme.

Minnesota Twins games in 2019 will feature lower-priced items including hot dogs, nachos and soft pretzels for $4; peanuts and popcorn for $3; and Soda for $2.

Following the lead set by Mercedes-Benz Arena several venues have dropped prices in the last year. This week, State Farm Arena, the home of NBA team the Atlanta Hawks, won plaudits for its value menu offerings.

The Twins will also add new self-checkout kiosks for concessions.

“The affordability of the Target Field experience remains paramount to our efforts to attract kids and families to the ballpark,” Twins president and chief executive Dave St. Peter said in a statement.
