The following week, the Loons return home to Saint Paul to host the latest Western Conference addition Nashville SC on Saturday, March 5 at 5:00 p.m. CT.

Allianz Field

Minnesota United and Major League Soccer have announced the full schedule for the 2022 MLS season. Headlining the 34-game season is the 2022 MLS All-Star game, presented by Target, at Allianz Field on Wednesday, August 10.  Certain to be a star-filled night!  

If you haven’t been there, Allianz field is a ring-shaped stadium, with seating for approximately 19,400.  Other team owners visit Allianz field for inspiration when they are thinking of building their new stadiums!   This home of Major League Soccer’s Minnesota United boasts the latest in amenities and technology.  The elegant “flow” design concept features LED lighting throughout the facility. The 360-degree canopy over the bowl protects fans and players from the elements while reducing noise and light pollution to the nearby neighborhoods.  This great facility was designed to create an inviting atmosphere for fans.

Much like the CHS stadium for the St. Paul Saints with their dog park and grassed outfield, Allianz field has an expansive area of lawn with 28,000-square-feet of Kentucky Bluegrass just to the north of the stadium.  This, along with a variety of native trees, maximizes shade and produces brilliant fall foliage.  The team and architect spent a lot of time and energy developing and implementing a fan-friendly experience--not forgetting the team’s origin in Blaine--bringing a replica clock and scoreboard from the Blaine National Sports Center.  

Getting There

Allianz Field is located just off Interstate 94 on a Minnesota commuter pipeline that connects Minneapolis and Saint Paul. Fans from across the state will be able to hop on the interstate and drive directly to Allianz Field. However, given the number of pedestrians, bicycles, and transit traffic around the stadium on game days, it is recommended that fans do their best to avoid driving directly to Allianz Field on gameday.

Optional ways to get to the game include:

  • Park-and-Ride lots in downtown St Paul that are within walking distance           
  • The Green Line Light Rail has a stop just outside the stadium.                    
  • Bus--Metro Transit A-Line services. 

With limited parking options around Allianz Field, one of the best options for fans attending a Minnesota United game is parking off-site and taking a free shuttle to Allianz Field.

The Loons will feature depth at striker this season.  According to the Loons’ Adrian Heath, “It’s probably the healthiest since I’ve been here in terms of striking positions,” Heath is in his sixth season as the Loons’ manager.

Adrien Hunou is back for a second season as a high-priced Designated Player, the Loons have brought back former No. 1 draft pick turned free agent Abu Danladi along with Luis Amarilla on a transfer from Argentina club Velez Sarsfield.  The United has also signed South African Bongokuhle Hlongwane and took St. John’s University product Tani Oluwaseyi with the 17th pick in the MLS SuperDraft on Jan. 11. Both players are 21 years old.

Minnesota United announced Wednesday the signing of defensive midfielder Kervin Arriaga to a two-year contract with a club option for the 2024 season.  Minnesota United also signed Jamaican defender Oniel Fisher to a one-year contract for the 2022 season and a club option for 2023.  The club had been in the market for a defender with Fisher’s experience and talent for a while.  

Overall the club looks better on paper than it did in 2021 and is poised to help Adrian Heath improve the team's record in what will be sure to be a competitive 2022 season.  Visit Allianz field this year and take in a fun United game with your favorite senior soccer lover!
