Allianz Field gets first fresh cut, Minnesota United host first practice

Before we know it, Minnesota United FC will be walking onto the pitch at Allianz Field for an MLS match for the first time on April 13 against New York City FC. We're just a week and a half away from that dream becoming reality. 

In the meantime, the club's new home continues to knock off a whole bunch of firsts. On Tuesday, the grass was cut for the first time and Wednesday, the first team held their maiden training session on the pitch. 

Minnesota United have enjoyed a solid start to the season, with two wins and two losses in four road matches. They play the New York Red Bulls away from home on Saturday (7 pm ET | TV & streaming info) before coming home to Allianz Field for their much-anticipated home opener.
