Who are the Dark Clouds?
“One thing I like about the Dark Clouds so much is that it’s a bunch of weirdos and misfits,” says Wes Burdine. “It’s a group of black sheep coming together.”
Stand and sing with us and you’re in. Come to any Dark Clouds event and you’re a part of us. Drink a Surly and watch some soccer. Want to vote on board membership or sit on the board? Come to the annual Supporters’ Summit and participate. That being said…
Dark Cloud History
The Dark Clouds formed in 2004 when the Minnesota Thunder moved to the James Griffin Stadium at St. Paul Central High School. A group of a strangers slowly turned into a supporters section. From there, the Dark Clouds have followed the team through thick and thin from the Thunder, to the NSC Minnesota Stars, to the Minnesota Stars FC to Minnesota United FC. We’ve been a part of the USL, USSF D-2 and the NASL. Before the Portland Timbers, Seattle Sounders, Montreal Impact and the Vancouver Whitecaps were in MLS they were playing Minnesota. And the Dark Clouds were there.
Paid membership is not required to come to events or participate in anything we do. But paid membership helps grow the game and our section. We’re trying to load up the perks to make it more than worth your while to be a part of it. We use the money to fund several things throughout the season including charity events, tailgating, TIFO, and game day experience. Any money left on the books at the end of the season gets donated to a charity chosen by the Board of Directors.
Board of Directors
The 2013 Board of Directors are:
Greg Jordan pushed the team forward with every chance he got and ran his socks off like he does each and every time he steps on the field.
2 stunning saves was the difference between a tie and loss and those are a credit to Matt VanOekel our King of the Match from this past Saturday.
This was a fun, welcome addition to our tailgate last year, so we’re glad they’re doing it again. Get up to Blaine early to warm-up heckle some..
