The Minnesota United are honoring their inaugural season ticket holders with a new sculpture at their new Major League Soccer stadium in St. Paul. 

The club unveiled the plans and design for the sculpture, which will consist of 12-foot-high letters spelling out the word “U-N-I-T-E-D.” Members of the Itasca Society-- which consists of season ticket holders who supported the club during its inaugural MLS season in 2017-- were given the opportunity to have an individual or family name carved into the work of art. 

The sculpture will span 65 feet and stand at the stadium’s southwest corner near Snelling Avenue and Interstate 94 when completed. 

“This sculpture provides an unmistakable image for all who pass by, and with it a clear reminder of who we are and the principles for which we stand,” MNUFC managing partner Dr. Bill McGuire said in a statement. “The word ‘United’ is a central element of our club and it symbolizes our goals of unifying our fans, our players, our community and our region around soccer and shared principles. We are honored to commemorate our Itasca Society members on this iconic work of art.”

The stadium, Allianz Field, is set to open in spring 2019.
