Minnesota United and Minnesota DNR loons and state parks partnership banner

Buy a season ticket, support loon monitoring and get a Minnesota State Parks pass!

Minnesota United FC, nicknamed "the Loons," has their inaugural Major League Soccer season in 2017. Minnesota United is partnering with the DNR to support Minnesota's loon populations and Minnesota state parks.

How does this work?

The first 11,842 season ticket holders - one for every lake in Minnesota - become part of Minnesota United's Itasca Society. A portion of all Itasca Society members' season ticket purchases will go to the DNR to support the Loon Monitoring Program, helping to protect the future of Minnesota's state bird. All Itasca Society ticket holder accounts will also receive a complimentary Minnesota State Parks Day Pass, along with many other perks and benefits.

How can I participate?
