Boot Soccer Returns to Allianz Field


There’s nothing like hitting that fresh pow pow on a cold winter’s day, right? We’re not talking about snowboarding or skiing, though; no, we’re talking about the greatest winter sport known to mankind—boot soccer.

You must surely be thinking, “Boots? We’re not British; they’re called cleats!” A statement that, while true in most MNUFC-related situations, is, in fact, false in this case.

The annual Boot Soccer Tournament is coming back to Allianz Field, which means it’s time to get ready for the glorious struggle of passing a slippery ball across the snow-covered Great Lawn. We’ll be playing 25-minute games across several small-sided fields on Saturday, February 17. The tournament is set to go from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with the Grand Casino Brew Hall open to keep participants warm and full between games. We’ll also be streaming the Loons’ preseason match against Charlotte throughout the tournament, so be sure to stop in and get a preview before the 2024 season starts.

Team registration is just $275 and includes 10 tickets to MNUFC’s home opener against the Columbus Crew. Plus, Coors Light is providing a free beverage for everyone, as well as a knit beanie for everyone 21+ and a scarf for those under 21. If you make it all the way to the finish line and lift the trophy, your team will get 10 MNUFC jerseys and a $500 Coors Light prize pack!

A rep from the club will reach out via email after you sign up, confirming your registration and guiding you through the next steps. Until then, see the list below for a quick guide to the tournament:
