The Minnesota United soccer team will be bringing their expertise to Minnesota farm country later this month by hosting a clinic for Greater Minnesota youth interested in honing their soccer skills. The event is part of a season-long partnership between the Major League Soccer club and the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) that shares information about corn farming and farm families with an engaged Twin Cities’ metro audience.
Minnesota United field staff and a member of the United team will be holding the soccer clinic in Farmington on Sept. 28 at 2pm. The event will be a can’t-miss opportunity for area youth, aged 7 to 12, to learn from the Major League Soccer team’s professional staff.
MCGA members will have the first opportunity to sign up for the free soccer clinic through Friday. After Friday, registration will open to the general public. To encourage one-on-one interaction with the United’s field staff, spots are limited. This FREE event will fill quickly, so be sure to register today!
The Farmington soccer clinic is one of many ways MCGA is partnering with the Minnesota United this season. Also part of the partnership, MCGA Night with the Minnesota United shined a spotlight on the state’s corn farmers during what was a nationally televised game in August. Attendees of the game received MCGA-branded rally towels, and facts about Minnesota’s corn farmers were shared with fans throughout the match.
