Northern Pitch has learned that the league has aligned itself with Minnesota United Football Club in pursuit of an outdoor soccer stadium.
“Sources say that MLS has provided written support for United’s efforts in building a stadium in downtown Minneapolis, while the team has moved aggressively in recent weeks to make that vision a reality. Northern Pitch has also confirmed that team owner Dr. Bill McGuire recently secured an option to purchase a property on Royalston Avenue, adjacent to the Minneapolis Farmers Market and near Target Field, which has long been speculated to be the future stadium site. Multiple sources suggest an announcement of an agreement to bring United into MLS could come within the next month. A representative from Minnesota United declined to comment on this report.”
