Naming rights for MN United's soccer stadium revealed

The stadium is set to open in early 2019.

The Minnesota United FC finalized the naming rights for their new stadium.

Allianz Field will open in the Midway neighborhood of St. Paul in early 2019. The 19,400-seat will have the ability to expand to a capacity of 25,000 in the future.

It's the company's first North American title agreement as Allianz has the naming rights to soccer stadiums in Brazil, Germany, England, France, Austria and Australia.

“As a global company with a long tradition of stadium sponsorship and strong connection to soccer around the world, Allianz is proud to join Minnesota United FC in bringing this facility to soccer fans in our great state,” said Allianz Life President and CEO Walter White – no it's not Brian Cranston from Breaking Bad in a press release on Tuesday.

Currently, the United play their home games at TCF Bank Stadium on the campus of the University of Minnesota.

The United are sitting in the basement of the Western Conference with just five wins this season, which is their first in the MLS.
