Minnesota United and Minnesota DNR loons and state parks partnership banner

Season ticket holders support loon monitoring and get a State Parks pass!

2017 is the inaugural Major League Soccer season for Minnesota United FC, nicknamed "the Loons." Minnesota United is partnering with the DNR to support Minnesota's loon populations and Minnesota State Parks.

Itasca Society

The first 11,842 season ticket holders - one for every lake in Minnesota - become part of Minnesota United's Itasca Society. A portion of all Itasca Society members' season ticket purchases go to the DNR to support the Loon Monitoring Program, helping to protect the future of Minnesota's state bird. The team has already donated $50,000! All Itasca Society ticket holder accounts also receive a complimentary Minnesota State Parks Day Pass, along with many other perks and benefits.
