The Minnesota United, a new professional soccer team nicknamed the Loons, has teamed up with the Department of Natural Resources to offer licensed hunters and anglers an opportunity to purchase discounted tickets to a home match Sunday, May 7, against Sporting Kansas City.
“We hear the call of the loon while we’re out on the water and exploring on land, and now it also means Major League Soccer,” said Jenifer Wical, the DNR’s Fish and Wildlife marketing coordinator. “If you have a fishing or hunting license now you can get this deal on tickets to a Minnesota United game.”
This offer is made possible through a partnership between the DNR and Minnesota United. The discount is available for all price points at TCF Bank Stadium with tickets starting at $20.
The DNR and soccer team has also partnered on a season ticket offer that supports loon populations throughout the state by way of the Minnesota Loon Monitoring Program.
The first 11,842 season ticket holders – one for every lake in Minnesota – have a portion of their season ticket support the DNR’s loon program, and all inaugural season ticket holder accounts will receive a complimentary Minnesota State Parks Day Pass.
