Everything You Wanted to Know About the New Soccer Stadium

Chris Wright, CEO, will join us. Chris Wright joined Minnesota United as the organization’s first CEO after 26 years with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Minnesota Lynx, including the last 13 years as President. Growing up in England, his first love was soccer, and it was only after a brief career as a player and then a coach/manager that he came stateside to work in the Major Indoor Soccer League. He eventually made his way to Minnesota to serve as the general manager of the Minnesota Strikers.

Allianz Field is a soccer-specific stadium currently under construction in the midway neighborhood in Saint Paul and the future home of Major League Soccer team Minnesota United FC. On October 23, 2015, team owners announced that Minnesota United would build a stadium on the 35-acre Saint Paul bus barn site. Find out everything you want to know about the new soccer stadium when team leadership joins us at Rotary!
