The National Sports Center announced that it will be the home field for FC Minneapolis, a non-league professional soccer club based in the Twin Cities.
The team will play some of their home games at the National Sports Center Stadium. The dates of the games are being finalized.
According to information posted by the team, the decision to move forward as a non-league professional soccer club “will help the club to realize its mission of being the world’s most entertaining and leading football brand by playing exhibition games and tournaments with top professional clubs within the United States and across the globe.
“Due to the fact that America’s football system does not grant a promotion path for smaller clubs to the major league, teams like FC Minneapolis are bound to be restricted to only regional and state level competitions which ultimately does not help the club to grow or the players to utilize every opportunity to market themselves to the world.
“The club’s decision to become non-league will help them to break any barriers that have been limiting them to a specific level of competition hindering their player growth and brand development.”
