With the 2020 MLS season thrown into chaos by COVID-19, Minnesota United wanted to make sure to find a way to thank season ticket members who stuck with us through all this upheaval and renewed their membership for 2021. For season ticket members who have logged into their accounts to roll over their 2020 balance for next season, the club has offered a number of bonus benefits, including $25 food, beverage and merchandise credits.
But one popular option has been to send that $25 to Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity — a great option to get your thanks by paying it forward to a great organization making a difference in our own community right now, with funds going to the newly-created At Home Fund.
“Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity creates, preserves, and advocates for affordable homeownership in the seven-county metro area – because homes are a building block for strong communities. We believe closing Minnesota’s worst-in-the-nation racial gap in homeownership is critical to creating a state where everyone can thrive. In addition to systemic racial inequities, our community is facing an uncertain future due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many are facing lost incomes, increased healthcare expenses, and the threat of foreclosure. That’s why we’ve launched the At Home Fund to protect homeowners and multiply Habitat homeownership opportunities. Together we can make it through this unprecedented time.”
Vice President of Ticket Sales Sean Sittnick has been impressed with the response from season ticket members so far.
“We are thrilled to be able to partner with such an impactful organization as Habitat for Humanity,” he said. “We are excited about the work they are doing help to rebuild the neighborhood that we call home. We are also incredibly humbled and thrilled that so many of our wonderful season ticket members would forego personal gain and aid in growing our donation. It is a testament to our fans that they constantly choose to make a difference in our greater community.”
“We’re thankful to Minnesota United and their season ticket members for partnering to build strong communities,” said Chris Coleman, President and CEO of TCHFH. “In these uncertain times, members can have impact through Twin Cities Habitat to help address systemic inequities in housing, protect homeownership, and create new homeownership opportunities in our region.”
If you’re a current season ticket member and haven’t yet transferred your 2020 balance, you can do so under the Payment tab of your SeatGeek account before 12:00 p.m. CT on Friday, July 31 to select your bonus benefit.
