Minnesota Corn returns to the pitch with the Minnesota United

The Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) partnered with Major League Soccer’s Minnesota United for another year to share the conservation efforts of the state’s corn growers this summer.

The partnership in its second year is an opportunity for MCGA to connect with a young, enthusiastic fan base at Minnesota United matches. Soccer fans will have the opportunity to learn how our states’ corn farmers are caring for our natural resources via in-stadium signage, in-game announcements, print features and more.

MCGA Night with the Minnesota United will take place on Saturday, July 14. United fans will enjoy corn-focused activities before and during the match. And for every single game ticket sold that night, $1 will be donated to the Soil Health Partnership, which is a farmer-led initiative that works to make agriculture more productive and sustainable through improved soil health. The check will be presented to the Soil Health Partnership at the match in an on-field ceremony.

Additionally, MCGA members will receive discounted tickets to June 29, July 14 and July 22 matches. On July 14 and 22, MCGA members and their families have the opportunity to gather on the field for a post-match photo. And prior to the July 22 match, children of members can participate in the fan tunnel prior to the game. To purchase discounted tickets to the three matches, visit MNUFC.com/promo and use the promo code “MCGA18” when purchasing.
