Minnesota United Game – Sunday, October 21

The sun was still high in the sky as the group entered the TCF Bank Stadium alongside 50,000 other soccer fans on the evening of Sunday, October 21. The Minnesota United were competing against the LA Galaxy in their last home game of the season, and a record breaking number of fans came out to support them. The fans at this game were like no other; people from a wide range of backgrounds came together to support their team, and the energy in the stadium was wild. Additionally, there were many parents with their children, as the game made for an exciting family event for all ages. The stadium was not only made welcoming to all people but was also organized in a way that was accessible – there were many seating options for people with differing mobile abilities, as well as captioning on the screen for all announcers and stadium-wide cheers. Although the game ended with a 3-1 loss for the Minnesota United, our group enjoyed the game and left with smiles on our faces. Attending the game as a fan was a fun introduction to analyzing athletics “off the field.”
