Minnesota United today announced Tuesday that it has sold out more than 600 premium seats in the current phase of the Allianz Field seat transition process.
The seats are in the Upper 90 Club, Loge Boxes, Field Club and Director's Box seating areas.
"Our fans are simply incredible. We knew there would be high demand for seats at Allianz Field, but we didn't know just how high it would be," Loons CEO Chris Wright said. "It's a tremendously positive sign for the club and yet more evidence that Allianz Field is going to be one of the hottest tickets in town come 2019 [when it opens].
"The fans are what makes the match day experience special, and a consistently packed stadium is the key to building that atmosphere."
