Minnesota United FC
2017: Professional top tier soccer returned to the Twin Cities for the first time in 33 years on March 3 as Minnesota United flew out to Portland to face the Timbers. In their first game, the Loons got grounded with a 5-1 pummeling. Christian Ramirez scored the first goal in club history. A week later, the team flew home to TFC Bank Stadium against fellow expansion team Atlanta United and the result was no different as ATL ran away with a 6-1 decision in a snowstorm. A leaky defense was the name of the game for the Loons in their first year, conceding 23 goals in their first eight games and couldn’t right the ship on the offensive side of the pitch either. The inaugural season would conclude with Minnesota in ninth place with a 10-18-6 record and 70 goals allowed.
