Minnesota Commits To Private Finance Of Stadium

Minnesota United is dedicated to bringing the best fan experience to soccer supporters in the Twin Cities. Today members of Minnesota United’s ownership group met with government officials to discuss the financing plan for a soccer-specific stadium at the Farmer’s Market site in downtown Minneapolis.

In the proposal, the ownership group has committed to privately finance the construction of an outdoor stadium - with natural grass - that is accessible to all people and communities. The Minnesota United Major League Soccer franchise will be the first professional team in Minnesota to construct their stadium without a direct public subsidy. Minnesota United will put a total private investment of $250 million forward to:

· Purchase the MLS expansion franchise (at a cost of $100 million dollars).

· Acquire necessary land for the new soccer facility in a centrally located and under-developed part of Minneapolis (approximately $30 million for land acquisition).

· Build a first-class MLS soccer facility through private funding (estimated at $120 million).

Now more than ever is the time to get on board and secure your place in Minnesota United’s outdoor stadium and get your priority number for the Loons’ move to MLS. Be among the first to choose your seat in the new stadium. Secure your seat priority number for the new stadium by becoming a season ticket holder today. Season tickets start as low as $185 for the 2015 season.
