Remember last year? When Seattle flooded the stadium with we-invented-soccer fans then beat us handily?
Do you remember their fans telling you passive-aggressively that “you’ll have a great team before you know it”?
What I remember is that despite losing that game, the supporters section showed up— getting louder and louder the more desperate things got.
This year? I think we’ll do better on the field, and in the section.
Join the Dark Clouds and fellow supporters on Saturday, 8/4, as we stop a streaking Seattle from making a sound on the road.
With two pre-match parties, a march to the match and a tifo display that is sure to impress, this match is bound for glory. Get the details below.
While Ramirez didn’t net us a Surly Bird Special, there’s still plenty of beer to be had at Surly. Join us for some food, drinks, and merch as we party it up alongside MNUFC supporters before heading to the match.
4pm | Surly Brewing Company | 520 Malcolm Ave SE, Minneapolis
They might not have a merch table, but they make up for it with food and drink specials. Head to the Dubliner in St. Paul for $3 Summit beers and $6 wing baskets.
4pm | Dubliner | 2162 University Ave W, St Paul
MARCH TO THE MATCH
On tifo days, we march. Join fellow Dark Clouds and Wonderwall denizens as we march to the match. We’ll gather at McNamara Lawn at 6:15pm, and march to the section at 6:25pm. Bring your outside voices.
During the match, the cross-sg tifo committee will display a special-made tifo for the occasion. While we can’t unveil their secrets just yet, we’ve certainly had an eye on the process. If you want to sign up to help in tifo deployment, do it soon. We have limited spots left.
As always, the Dark Clouds are always looking for passionate supporters to get more involved in the matchday experience. If you’re game for waving a flag all match, or you want to get involved in other matchday festivities you can fill out the interest form here.
