Professional soccer emerged at the forefront of Minnesota sports in 1976 when the Kicks first began play at the old Met. That legacy has continued for 40 years. Trophies, underdog drama and individual success converge to form the essence of Minnesota soccer. With United beginning MLS play in 2017, the next chapter of professional soccer in Minnesota has begun. The Minnesota United play their 2018 season at TCF Bank Stadium and will move to their new home, Allianz field in 2019.
