We are excited to announce that we have been named the Official Airline of Gopher Athletics.


“We are thrilled that Sun Country is now the Official Airline of Gopher Athletics,” said Director of Athletics Mark Coyle. “For years, Sun Country has safely and comfortably flown our teams across the country so they can proudly represent Minnesota in competition. Sun Country also provides a tremendous and affordable option for our fans to travel and watch the Gophers compete. We are thankful for Sun Country’s partnership with Gopher Athletics and look forward to additional opportunities with them.”


In addition to flying Gopher athletics, Sun Country Airlines will also participate in game day activations with their football and volleyball teams, in addition to men’s and women’s basketball and hockey.


“Sun Country Airlines is excited to be ‘on the road’ with Gopher Athletics and expand our longstanding partnership,” said Sun Country Airlines Chief Marketing Officer Brian Davis. “It’s a privilege to fly our University of Minnesota teams around the U.S. to represent Minnesota and connect athletes, their families, and fans with memorable game-day experiences.”


Gopher fans will see additional Sun Country sponsorship activities and branding at home sporting events on campus as a part of this expanded partnership.
