Pronounced ahh-lee-ahnz, Allianz Field is sponsored by Allianz Life—a Golden Valley-headquartered subsidiary of German financial company, Allianz, who sponsors seven other major sports facilities around the world.
Allianz Field was inspired by Minnesota’s natural wonders—the Northern Lights, great rivers and countless lakes. The bowl-shaped stadium features a first-of-its-kind glass-like mesh exterior with an extensive LED lighting system, enabling it to illuminate in an endless combination of colors and designs. The stadium will seat 19,400 on opening day, with plans for future expansion of up to 24,474.
The north end features a Brew Hall serving up 96 taps and full food service to all MNUFC fans. This is also where you’ll find the Black and Blue Team Store, where you can get all sorts of team swag—including on-site jersey customization. This Fanatics Experience store in the northwest corner will be open year-round to the public.
Wondering where you’ll find rambunctious supporter groups like Dark Clouds and True North Elite? These rowdy, energetic fans will be leading cheers and getting the crowd hyped from the general admission MNUFC Supporter sections on the south end of the stadium, otherwise referred to as The Wonderwall section.
Designed for more than just aesthetics, the 360-degree canopy, open roof, natural grass and exclusive use of LED lights make for an incredibly low-energy footprint. Rainwater collected from the roof canopy will flow into a central stormwater system that will serve the 35-acre development surrounding the stadium.
