The following week, the Loons return home to Saint Paul to host the latest Western Conference addition Nashville SC on Saturday, March 5 at 5:00 p.m. CT. 

Sun Country Airlines, the Official Airline of Minnesota United, is offering fans the opportunity to support the Loons on the road with affordable, nonstop flights. Fans can book travel to many of the team’s away games this season at suncountry.com.

Minnesota United will be featured in eight nationally televised games showcasing exciting matchups against Western Conference opponents Sporting Kansas City, Austin FC, Seattle Sounders and Portland Timbers. Additionally, the Loons will face off against Chicago Fire on ESPN on April 23. Non-nationally televised games will be broadcast on Bally Sports North, the CW Twin Cities and SKOR North. 

In 2022, MNUFC brings back the club’s Mental Health Awareness game on Saturday, May 7 as the Loons face FC Cincinnati, and Hispanic Heritage match on Tuesday, September 13 against LAFC. This season, Minnesota United’s Pride Night will be on Saturday, July 30, as the club does not host a home game during the month of June.

As previously announced, to best align with the 2022 international soccer calendar, the MLS regular season will begin earlier than ever before, kicking off on Saturday, Feb. 26 and running through Decision Day, the regular season finale, on Sunday, Oct. 9. The Audi 2022 MLS Cup Playoffs directly follow the regular season, with three consecutive weeks of action leading up to the 2022 MLS Cup on Saturday, Nov. 5, more than two weeks prior to the start of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar on Nov. 21.

The 2022 MLS regular season broadcast schedule features the largest network coverage in league history. A record 48 matches will air on network television across ABC, FOX, Univision and UniMás. MLS action will air on ABC nine times in 2022 with a total of 34 matches aired across ABC, ESPN, and ESPN2, all of which will also be available in Spanish on ESPN Deportes. FOX Sports will showcase 34 matches in the upcoming year, highlighted by 27 on FS1 and seven on FOX, with twice as many primetime windows as the network’s 2021 slate of games. Additionally, all 34 matches will air in Spanish on FOX Deportes. Thirty-two matches will be broadcast in Spanish across Univision and UniMás.
