As General Manager of U.S. Bank Stadium, Patrick is responsible for the overall management and operation of the new facility. Talty is charged with leading the SMG team as they continue to book a variety of diverse events, while creating a safe, memorable, fan-friendly environment for all employees and guests. Patrick and his team have already experienced huge success opening U.S. Bank Stadium and navigating through the first year of facility operations. In it’s inaugural season, U.S. Bank Stadium has hosted a sold-out international soccer match, sold-out back-to-back concerts, three Monster Truck shows, Supercross, and hundreds of private corporate meetings, weddings, tradeshows, and public tours all within the first year.
Patrick has over twenty years of experience in the venue management industry. He started his career in Indianapolis at the Indiana Convention Center and RCA Dome. In 2006, he was named Assistant General Manager of the University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals
and annual Fiesta Bowl. He went from Arizona to Abu Dhabi, where Talty became Zayad Sports City’s General Manager. The venue went from hosting ten events per year to more than a 100 during his first year there. Prior to U.S. Bank Stadium, Patrick was the Senior Vice President of
Live Events for WWE, where he oversaw 425 live events and sold over 2 million tickets per year with 125 million dollars in revenue.
Coupled with his ability to market special events, Talty’s effectiveness in building and leading teams is the foundation for his success. Most recently he was recognized in Sports Business Journal’s “Power Players 2017: Today’s Facility Managers” in their June 19 addition of SBJ. When he is not working he enjoys spending time with his wife and four children, and their new puppy. He looks forward to continued success stories for his team at U.S. Bank Stadium in their second year and beyond.
