Portland Tournament Travel List

Minnesota United has landed in Portland and is preparing for a tournament at Providence Park ahead of its 2017 inaugural MLS season. While the weather has been damp and cold, competition and comradery is heating up on the pitch for MNUFC after a successful training trip in Arizona this past week.

Two training sessions down in the Northwest, the club is focused on improving chemistry on the pitch by quick-touch stations, small sided warmups and scrimmages. This Thursday will be a good opportunity to see how MNUFC is coming together for fans who can see the team in action with a match streamed at MNUFC.COM against the Vancouver Whitecaps.
