We might’ve buried the lede a bit because perhaps the best part about the entire week is that Major League Soccer, Minnesota United and other local partners will be working together to give back to the Twin Cities community in a number of truly impactful ways, including an MLS WORKS Day of Service, an All-Star Community Day, a Special Olympics Unified All-Star Game and more.
