What’s a really tough-sounding name we could name our team that will guarantee a crowd for decades to come?


Tesla Coils!

Propane Accessories!

How about the Dynamo?

Join fellow Dark Clouds and friends as they watch the Loons take on the worst-named team in MLS, the Houston Dynamo.

We have a raucous pre-match party in store at the Black Hart in St. Paul, so be sure to stop by.

Get the full details below and we’ll see you there!

Pre-Match Party at Black Hart

Many members of the Dark Clouds during the first watch party of the season, gathered around a screen at the Black Hart of Saint Paul.

Be sure to get there early to say your blessings at the Ibson AND Jerry shrines and to grab some discounted drinks when you show your Card of Wonder.


Our loyal merch crew will be spotting up at Black Hart at 4pm.

Be sure to grab one of the few remaining Talisman x Dark Clouds hats while you’re there!

Do you enjoy people selling you merch? Wearing merch? Talking about merch with all your merch friends? Show your appreciation for our volunteers with a kind word or filled pint.

March to the Match

The Dark Clouds will be marching from Black Hart to the great lawn at 5:15pm before marching to the Bell Bank entrance (see image up top) with the rest of the Wonderwall at 5:30pm.

The lower sections will again be held for people participating in the march, so be sure to join the ruckus.

Additional Information

In addition to the code of conduct to which we hold ourselves, Major League Soccer has instituted a league-wide code of conduct that applies to all matches. You can read the code of conduct, here.

To help speed up entrance to the stadium, be sure to adhere to the clear bag policy for Allianz Field.

Flags and Musical Instruments

Flags are welcome in the supporters section. All flags must be approved by the team at the supporters entrance before they may be carried into the stadium. You can read full rules on flags and banners under the supporters section in the guide, here.

Musical Instruments must be pre-approved by the Dark Clouds prior to matchday. Please e-mail us at info (at) to request approval to bring in an instrument.

Do not wave flags or play instruments in the concourses. This will result in your flag or instrument being taken away. Flags and musical instruments may only be waved or played in the supporters section.
