NEW STADIUM NEEDED FOR LATEST MLS FRANCHISE IN MINNESOTA

Major League Soccer has awarded an expansion franchise to Minnesota, but a stadium is yet to be built for the team.

MLS Commissioner Don Garber and the owner of North American Soccer League’s Minnesota United, Dr. Bill McGuire, announced the MLS will expand to the US State in 2018.

However, it is expected that an outdoor stadium will be built within the next three years to house MLS’ 23rd franchise.

The proposed site for the venue is just a few blocks away from Target Field, the home of Major League Baseball’s Minnesota Twins, with a capacity of about 18,500 and at a cost of between $100 and $200 million.

McGuire and his group of investors have been working on finalizing a plan by July 1, but specifics about the financing of the build are yet to be provided.
