Minnesota United to Face Atlanta for Home Opener

by on 21 December 2016

The Loons will make their first home MLS appearance on March 12th at TCF Bank Stadium against Atlanta United.

Minnesota will face their fellow expansion club Atlanta United in their first home match. The two clubs have taken two different approaches to expansion with Atlanta splashing cash on young South American talent while Minnesota has focused initially on working with their existing talent.

The Loons’ first match in MLS will be away to the Portland Timbers on March 3rd, a Friday night matchup that will be nationally televised. This match will also be the first of the MLS season, a big spotlight for the expansion-side Loons. Minnesota and Portland have a long history between them from their USL days.

The rest of the MLS schedule is expected to be announced later in January.
