MATCHDAY GUIDE | MNUFC vs Portland
EXT. HOME – NIGHT
Worried Fanbase welcomes their estranged child, Matchday, home from a long absence.
Oh, now you’re coming home? After all this time?
FORTY-NINE DAYS and now this.
You didn’t call, you didn’t write–you could have been dead…
(Worried fanbase holds back their tears, but one loud sob breaks through)
…You know what, Matchday, just come inside. There’s not enough time in this world to hold grudges. But don’t you dare turn on that television, we’re spending some quality time together this instant.
I’m thinking Pangop plays Matchday, and Jerry plays Worried Fanbase.
Great food, even better beer. (Surly, if you’re reading this, we’ll sell you that slogan.)
Join us at Surly Brewing Company for a raucous pre-match party with indoor/outdoor spaces and a ton of familiar faces. Be sure to get there early if you want parking.
4pm | Surly Brewing Company | 520 Malcolm Ave SE, Minneapolis
They might not have a merch table, but the Dubliner makes up for it with food and drink specials. Head there for $3 Summit beers and $6 wing baskets.
4pm | Dubliner | 2162 University Ave W, St Paul
DARK CLOUDS MERCH

Stop by the Dark Clouds merch table at Surly before the match and help support cool soccer things.
MARCH TO THE MATCH
We’ll meet at the McNamara lawn at 6:05pm, then march to stadium at 6:15pm.
In case you haven’t noticed in the million times we’ve said in over the last month, the cross-sg tifo committee will be displaying a gigantic tifo during the match. If you want to sign up to help in tifo deployment, do it soon. We have limited spots left.
Ready for some exciting news? We’re partnering with Pourhouse – Dinkytown to throw post-match parties. This party kicks off at 9pm, and features 2-4-1’s all night. Not bad, not bad at all.
