Minnesota United today announced Allianz Field will be moving towards full capacity — with some exceptions due to specific MLS safety restrictions in certain seating areas — beginning with the Loons’ game against Austin FC on June 23. This decision comes as a result of wider distribution of the vaccines and Minnesota’s newly announced health guidelines regarding outdoor venues.
“Our fans make our gameday experience the best in MLS and are the heart and soul of our club. We are so excited to welcome even more fans back to Allianz Field as we know how important their support is to our players and coaches,” said MNUFC CEO Chris Wright. “Sports are meant to bring communities together. We also know that even though Minnesota is a national leader in vaccinations that not everyone is comfortable in a full venue right now. However, we look forward to welcoming everyone back when they are ready. We are also grateful for the work our state leaders and local health officials have done to get our state back to some level of normalcy. We cannot wait to hear a packed Allianz Field sing ‘Wonderwall’ again.”
Tickets will go on sale to the general public in early June. Season ticket members whose seats will be impacted by safety restrictions will be contacted directly. Members will receive their 2021 season ticket seating location for all remaining home games, unless they opt out. More details about this process will be shared next week. Presales for remaining tickets will begin in early June.
Minnesota United will maintain health and safety protocols currently in place including required face-coverings for all fans and staff. MNUFC will continue to work with local health officials and Major League Soccer to keep Allianz Field a safe environment for fans.
