We exist to connect Minnesota sports fans
In June of 2013, I Love Minnesota Sports started with a simple question: “Why isn’t there a better way to follow all Minnesota sports teams on Facebook?”
Traditional Minnesota newspapers and radio station pages didn’t have timely enough updates, and they didn’t feature the voices of fans. Then the actual team pages ranged from good to great content, but they only talk about their one team, and they need to put a positive spin on everything.
We believed a more timely, more honest social media fan experience should exist, one that covered all teams in one feed, and let real fan voices rule in good times and bad.
So we created I Love Minnesota Sports and focused completely on connecting Minnesota fans, to each other, and to the best content from all sources.
Before long, some regulars started showing up. And now, we’re growing faster than ever, and over 12,000 fans interact every single week.
It’s been humbling and amazing, and it’s time we take things to another level.
INTRODUCING A SYMBOL FOR TRUE MINNESOTA FANS
Loyalty has always been at the heart of the best fans. We’re so ready for a winner we can hardly stand it, but the best fans hang in there with their teams.
So to represent that loyalty, we wanted to create an iconic symbol of pride in our state, and in our shared passion for the teams we love. It’s a symbol just as appropriate for a playoff game at Xcel, a tailgate at TCF, or a t-ball game in Maple Grove.
This flag lets everyone know… I love Minnesota sports.
“BUT IT NEEDS TO CHANGE WITH THE SEASONS”
The season’s change, and so do the teams and topics we want to talk about. I Love Minnesota Sports will always be about what us fans care about most in the moment.
So we challenged ourselves to change with the seasons.
For when it’s baseball and football season.
Or when it’s really just about football season.
And after all, we are the State of Hockey.
And we’ll always love the Twins, even when they make us crazy.
Because at the end of the day, no matter what season or team, we just love Minnesota sports. So let’s get back to talking about it!
