Fans cheering on team at football game

Throughout the entire football season, both amateur and professional pigskin fans who fly with Sun Country Airlines can see their favorite teams play across the country. Check out all the destinations below to see where you can cheer on your favorite teams.

Lincoln Financial Field - Philadelphia, PA

Flying into Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) puts football fans just a short 15-minute drive from cheering on their favorite team at Lincoln Financial Field. Fans of the purple and gold can plan a long weekend in Philly with flights from Sun Country departing Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP) on Thursday mornings and returning home on Sunday evenings.

Depart Minneapolis on September 14 and return on September 17.

Bank of America StadiumCharlotte, NC

Ending your trip to Charlotte with a Sunday afternoon football game is the cherry on top of a wonderful weekend. Take off from MSP Friday morning and return on a Sunday evening flight after watching your favorite team play the cats of Carolina.

Depart Minneapolis either September 28 or 29 and return October 1.

Soldier Field Chicago, IL

A weekend in the Windy City isn’t complete without a stop at Soldier Field. Take a flight out of MSP Friday evening and come back Sunday night after watching a Midwest showdown on the gridiron at high noon. After all, flights to Midway (ORD) are only an hour and a half, so it makes a quick and easy trip.

Depart Minneapolis on October 13 and return on October 15.

Empower Field at Mile HighDenver, CO

If you haven’t flown into Denver before, the airport experience and lore around it is worth the trip alone. Now, add in attending a professional football game to your trip. Both of those things plus the ridiculously low prices to fly there on Sun Country make this trip a no brainer.

Depart Minneapolis on November 17 and return on November 20.
