Corn Farmers to Take Center Stage with Minnesota United
Minnesota Ag Connection - 07/22/2019
The Minnesota Corn Growers Association partnered with Major League Soccer's Minnesota United for their first season at beautiful Allianz Field in St. Paul. An opportunity to promote the state's corn farmers, the season-long partnership culminates with
MCGA Night as the United take on the Portland Timbers on Aug. 4.
The corn-themed party begins prior to kick-off in the plaza outside Allianz Field with Twin Cities Road Crew and Minnesota Corn mascot Maizey. The group will be sharing information about Minnesota's corn growers while playing music and holding dance
competitions to entertain fans.
The first 5,000 attendees to enter Allianz Field will receive MCGA-branded rally towels, which will serve as a fun souvenir for fans long after the game is over. Facts about Minnesota's corn sector will also be shared with fans throughout the match as one of
many ways the Minnesota United will celebrate our corn farmers.
An added bonus: The match will be televised live on ESPN, reaching a national audience. Kick-off is scheduled for 3 p.m.

The Minnesota United partnership continues to be a terrific opportunity for MCGA to connect with a young, enthusiastic fan base, organizers report. The inaugural season at Allianz Field has produced many sell-out crowds with excitement for the team at an
all-time high. At each match, soccer fans have learned more about the Minnesota's corn farmers via in-stadium signage, in-game announcements and more.
