Loons in the news

Minnesota United officially announced a multi-year agreementregarding 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.
