Once you’ve familiarized yourself with the policies of attending a game in the COVID-19 world, you’ll need to think about how you’re getting there. As with most sporting events, parking will be at a premium. There are several surface lots available around Allianz Field for fans looking to park.
In the past, fans were able to purchase parking packages that allowed for parking throughout the season. This season, parking passes will be available on a single-game basis, with a limited number of lots open and varying week to week. Parking passes can be purchased online in advance of games or fans can purchase a parking pass as they enter the lot. Note: These transactions – like all transactions at Allianz Field in 2021 – must be cashless and will require a credit card. Keep your cash at home.
Fans are asked to wear their masks as soon as they leave their vehicle.
Other Transportation Options
For some, leaving the car at home will be the best option. Fans who choose to drive to the game will deal with congestion and delays both when arriving and departing Allianz Field. Minnesota United highly recommends exploring other options for getting to and from the stadium and fortunately there are plenty of options to choose from.
The Snelling-University area is serviced by both the Green Line Light Rail and the A Line bus rapid transit systems, as well as other city bus lines. Allianz Field also features a dedicated area for app-based ride-sharing as well as 400 bike parking spots.
With limited parking options around Allianz Field, one of the best options for fans attending a Minnesota United game is parking off-site and taking a free shuttle to Allianz Field.
Downtown Saint Paul
The city of Saint Paul has made four parking ramps in downtown Saint Paul available within walking distance of transit lines with direct routes to Allianz Field. The city's Smith, 7A, Lowertown and Block 19 parking ramps will all be available to the public at a $5 rate on gamedays, beginning two hours before kickoff.
Allianz Field is located near attractive options for Metro Transit, making it easy to get to the stadium from locations all over the Twin Cities in an economic and efficient fashion.
Due to the pandemic, Metro Transit bus and light rail lines servicing Allianz Field may have limited capacity. Trains and buses leaving Snelling and University stops will follow capacity limits which may lead to long lines after games. For the most current information, click here.
