Allianz Field has apologized to U.S.A. fans after the TV feeds to the stadium's Brew Hall cut out during the Women's World Cup Final.

One guest at the Brew Hall tweeted that the feed to the USWNT's win over the Netherlands cut out at 59 minutes, 2 minutes before Megan Rapinoe struck to give the U.S. the lead.

Rose Lavelle then doubled the lead 10 minutes later, while some fans were hunched around streams on their phones.

"We want to apologize for the technical issues with the game feed at the Brew Hall, it couldn’t have happened at a worse time," said a statement from Minnesota United CEO Chris Wright.

"We were able to get the game back on half the TVs so fans could watch the USWNT win. 

"Again we apologize for the inconvenience. Congratulations to the USWNT."

There was plenty of disgruntled customers as a result of the TV freeze, who took to social media to share their dissatisfaction.
