About: (Est. 2010) “Minnesota United FC represents the next era of professional soccer in the beautiful state of Minnesota. We are proud of who and what has come before us—from the raucous party that was the Kicks, the magical years the Thunder spent developing local talent, to the recent 2011 NASL Championship. Now we are excited for what the future holds. We seek to help the world’s game grow in the Twin Cities through strong play on the field and constant giveback off it.”

Select quote: “[We] whittled our many design ideas down into one that centered on Minnesota’s iconic loon, which has an active, aggressive nature that we thought was inspirational for a soccer team. The design also incorporates a star to tie to their past, as well as a blue stripe to represent the Mississippi river.”
