On Tuesday, members of the Dark Clouds (and some from True North Elite) gathered at the Summit Beer Hall for a Mid-Season Assembly to discuss plans for the rest of the 2016 season and look ahead to 2017. At the event, Minnesota United’s Director of Ticket Sales, Sean Sittnick, announced a 28% increase in ticket prices for supporters.
Sittnick unveiled the new price for the Dark Clouds’ section tickets of $360 for 18 matches (this price includes the Dark Clouds membership). Previously, Dark Clouds paid around $15.63 per match (both numbers are “early bird” prices). This pricing comes ahead of the complete stadium pricing announcement expected in early October and is currently projected as the second cheapest priced section in the stadium.
The new supporters section (including both Dark Clouds and True North Elite) at TCF Bank Stadium will be located in the lower bowl of the East end line, in what is normally the student section.
Further details, including tailgating, transit, capacity, and pricing for other sections, are still being ironed out and will be announced at a later date.
Dark Clouds president Jim Oliver discussed opportunities to get involved with gameday operations, tifo creation, and Silver Lining opportunities (the group’s charity events). DC board member Abe Opoti stressed that these opportunities are open to all supporters of the Loons, especially as the groups move towards standing together at TCF Bank Stadium.
Upcoming Dark Clouds’ events discussed include:
