Minnesota United to Face Chicago Fire in Home Opener

by on 19 December 2017

Minnesota United announced on Tuesday that its home opener at TCF Bank Stadium will be Saturday, March 17th. The Loons are set to face the Chicago Fire for only the second time since joining MLS.

In a press release, Minnesota United CEO Chris Wright said, “This will be my first home opener with MNUFC and the increase in our season ticket base; I am expecting us to pick up where we left off last season and create an incredible atmosphere at TCF Bank Stadium. We want this match to set the tone for the season.”

The Loons last faced the Fire on August 26th when they picked up their first road win since joining MLS. That win was led by a match-winning goal from Abu Danladi.

As of now, the kick-off time for the home opener has not been decided and Minnesota United hopes to have that time ironed out in the near future.

After starting their inaugural season on the road last season at the Portland Timbers, Minnesota United will also begin their 2018 campaign on the road.The Loons open their season facing the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday, March 3. This match is set to take place at 9:30 pm CT.

Minnesota will play in one more home opener as the Portland Timbers wait until April 14th to have their first match at Providence Park.
