While everyone is getting antsy for Minnesota United’s first game in its new, permanent home against NYCFC on Sunday, April 13, there’s an overlooked element of permanence taking shape at Allianz Field right now. The sign emblazoned with “Black and Blue Official Team Store | A Fanatics Experience” has just gone up and it marks the first time the team will have a brick and mortar store open year-round, seven days a week.
Although we’re still at least a month away from the grand opening planned for late March, its presence at Allianz Field will be significant for fans who have had to rely strictly on online ordering and gamedays to get their Loons gear. Located in northwest corner of the stadium, the 2,149-square-foot store will offer some new amenities that come along with a permanent space, including parking and on-site jersey customization — a welcome change from having to send your new jersey away to get it done.
