Loons in the news

Minnesota United officially announced a multi-year agreement regarding broadcast rights between the club and FOX Sports North (FSN). The majority of games this season will be broadcast on either FOX Sports North or Fox Sports North PLUS, with all games available to be streamed live on the FOX Sports GO app.

Ahead of the planned kit reveal at the Mall of America this Sunday, MNUFC released more details on their new kits for 2018. More choices will be made available, including long and short-sleeved jerseys and an expanded replica line.

More pictures were snapped at the construction site on Allianz Field this week, with pieces of the canopy now starting to be built.

Minnesota United continues to negotiate with Colombian club Deportivo Cali over the rights of attacking midfielder Nicolas Benedetti. A recent update indicates that if a deal is reached it will more likely be made during the summer transfer window.

Minnesota United is in talks with USL side Saint Louis FC to establish an affiliate relationship between the two clubs. Within the framework of such a deal Saint Louis would be the destination for MNUFC players that may need more playing time, while Saint Louis players could receive training opportunities in Minnesota at the MLS level.

    Can you do an article about how to watch without cable using a streaming service: Like Sling or FoxSoccer Match Pass or MLS Live. When you look at the Fox Sports North webpage about half the games are not on Fox Sports North they are on Fox Sports North+ and then another is only on Fox Sports Go. I am confused.

      John, I have Sling and there are 4 extra FSN channels that are off air unless there’s a schedule conflict. Go to the end of the channel guide and they will all be grouped together. Basically, Wild, Twins, or Wolves games will take priority and be on FSN if there’s a schedule conflict, and one of the extra FSN channels will have the United match.

        THANKS! Looks like Sling is in my future.
