About the Minnesota United FC
Minnesota United FC Tickets
Major League Soccer continues to expand, and not long ago that expansion took the league to the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Minnesota United FC – nicknamed the Loons – was born in 2015, and two years later they joined the MLS as the league’s 22nd team. Despite a season that overlaps with snowy weather and a spot that plays regardless of sun, rain, or snow, the Loons appear to be a perfect fit for MLS.
Not the First Minnesota Team
Before the MLS offered Minnesota United FC the opportunity to join the league, soccer was already flourishing in the Gopher State. Minnesota United, also previously known as NSC Minnesota and Minnesota Stars FC, was founded in 2010 as part of the North American Soccer League. The team experienced immediate success, winning the 2011 championship despite being the sixth and final team to qualify for the playoffs. Minnesota United also won the Supports Shield in 2014, helping to make them an obvious choice as an MLS expansion team.
The Early Years
As expected, the jump from the NASL to the MLS was a rough one for the Loons. Despite holdovers like Christian Ramirez and Brent Kallman, as well as newcomers like Michael Boxall and Miguel Ibarra leading the way, Minnesota United suffered losing seasons in each of their first two years in MLS. They finished far from a playoff spot, indicating a lot of room for improvement. However, things started to turn around in 2019 under head coach Adrian Heath. The Loons made a deep run in the U.S. Open Cup, reaching the quarterfinals, and are poised to secure their first-ever playoff birth.
