Like the Cascadia clubs, Minnesota United has a much longer soccer history than its MLS iteration. Originally founded in 2010, Minnesota played in USL and then NASL for seven years before making the jump to MLS as Minnesota United FC in 2016. The club is nicknamed the Loons, with the mascot PK a loon is an aquatic bird found in North America. Minnesota plays in the unique color combination of grey, blue, and black which give the crest and team jerseys the feel of winter and battling the cold. The club teamed up with Target (headquartered in Minnesota) as the primary sponsor.
Allianz Field is the first dedicated home for Minnesota United after playing the club’s first MLS seasons at Minnesota University. The stadium opened in 2019 and sits just under 20,000. The ground is located in between the ‘Twin Cities, Minneapolis and St. Paul. Allianz Field has a polymer exterior with LEDs giving the building a dynamic and futuristic look. The arena is fully enclosed except the roof opening keeps both the fans protected from the elements and the crowd noise to enhance the atmosphere.
The stadium was built with seats just 17 feet away from the pitch and the farthest seat a mere 125 feet. Minnesota’s new home has Loge Boxes and Party Suites available for reservation. The Upper 90 Club, Field Club, and Stadium Club provide full-service bar and dining, as well as great views of the pitch. Or you can watch from the Roof Deck to get the highest viewpoint, similar to television angles. Secure great deals on tickets and your chance to see Minnesota United in its newly opened soccer arena.
