Show your support for Minnesota United’s proposed plan for a soccer-specific stadium at the West Loop Minneapolis Farmers Market site. This is an opportunity for Minnesota to have a group of locally-based owners put forward a $250 million private investment into the community and build a world class facility that will act as a destination and anchor point for developing and enhancing Minneapolis. A MLS soccer-specific field is a unique experience and is unlike any currently available in the northern Midwest.

Minnesota United has been awarded the 23rd MLS franchise.
“We are proud to welcome Minnesota to Major League Soccer,” MLS Commissioner Don Garber said in a league statement. “The ownership group’s commitment to soccer and the community, the area’s growing millennial population and the region’s rich tradition of supporting soccer at all levels in Minnesota were key indicators that this was the right market. The passionate soccer fans in Minnesota will soon have a world-class, downtown soccer stadium that will serve as the home for the new MLS team and become a destination for marquee international sports events.”
“I want to thank MLS Commissioner Don Garber and the league’s owners for helping us bring Major League Soccer to Minnesota,” Owner Bill McGuire said in the statement. “As a group of Minnesotans who love this state and have made a commitment to bring this vision to life, this is a momentous day that we’ve all been waiting for.”
Current season ticket holders and individuals who purchase 2015 Minnesota United FC season tickets will have priority for the club’s 2018 MLS season seat selection.
