Since 2017, MNUFC’s Unified Squad has represented our club in a special way. Comprised of players both with and without intellectual disabilities, the Unified Team was formed as part of a league partnership with Special Olympics to use the beautiful game as a force for sharing opportunities and impacting lives. 

With the help of presenting sponsor Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, the MNUFC Unified Team has cultivated a wonderful environment. Every season, unified athletes train where the pros train, sign official contracts with the club, and don their very own MNUFC kits in one home and one road match each year. These games always follow a first-team match, giving the squad a chance to experience what it’s like to play in an MLS stadium with an MLS atmosphere. 

Our Unified Team is just as much a part of our club as any other team that wears the crest. If you’re looking to show your support for the Loons as best as you can, be on the lookout for news regarding the Unified schedule. Check this page, any club newsletters, Center Circles, or other emails to get a heads up on when they’ll be playing at Allianz Field, then mark your calendar and stay after the first team match to cheer on this awesome squad.
