Welcome to Minnesota!

Fox9 in Twin Cities video of grounds crew de-icing Allianz Field for Minnesota United home opener April 12

“We are just one day away from a huge moment in Minnesota soccer history: the Minnesota United’s inaugural home opener at their new Major League Soccer stadium Allianz Field.

The Loons will face New York City FC at 4 p.m. Saturday, but before they can take the pitch, the grounds crew has to clear away all the snow and ice from this week’s spring storm.

The pitch itself is already ready thanks to a heating system, but piles of heavy snow still need to be cleared from the sidelines and seating areas before fans arrive.” See video here
