The Minnesota United FC is a young football club in Major League Soccer, but already has some great history in terms of their players, coaches, and everything in between. As of this writing, they are fourth in the MLS standings this season with an 11-5-9 record, 38 points. They have some interesting MLS odds right now and should be interesting to dive into a bit.
The Minnesota United FC was the 22nd club to join the league and hopped right into the 2017 MLS schedule. They began playing their home games on the campus of the University of Minnesota for the first two seasons before playing in Allianz Field beginning in 2019. They have been in the MLS for five full seasons and made the MLS Playoffs three times (2019, 2020, 2021) and have made it to the Conference Finals in 2020.
Minnesota United FC Records
Since a lot of the records are still going with all-time records of a young club, we will dive into their single-season numbers. Forward Christian Ramirez holds the record with 14 goals in a season back in 2017. Forward Darwin Quintero holds the record of 15 assists in a year back in 2018. Inside of the goal, Tyler Miller in 2021 and Vito Mannone in 2019 each recorded 11 clean sheets in a season.
The most historical events were the day they first joined MLS as their first game was on March 3, 2017 and it was not pretty. They had a road game against the Portland Timbers and lost 5-1. Another historical event was the 2020 MLS Playoffs as they won their first two games by defeating the Colorado Rapids 3-0 and upsetted the top-seeded Sporting Kansas City 3-0.
Championship won by the team
As of this writing, Minnesota United FC has not won a championship as their closest was in the 2020 MLS Playoffs that we just noted earlier. They look to be in a good position as of this writing for the 2022 MLS season and the MLS betting stats do not have them anywhere near the favorite as they have the 14th-best odds to win the championship this season at +3500, which is tied with both the New England Revolution and Orlando City SC.
The team has definitely relied on transfers as they have acquired midfielder Jonathan Gonzalez (loan) from Queretaro, forward Mender Garcia (undisclosed) from Once Caldas, defenseman Kemar Lawrence (allocation) from Toronto FC, forward Luis Amarilla (undisclosed) from Velez Sarsfield, midfielder Kervin Arriaga (allocation) from Marathon, forward Bongokuhle Hlongwane (undisclosed) from Maritzburg United, forward Abu Danladi (free), defenseman Oniel Fisher (free), and goalkeeper Eric Dick (free). They have lost a few players on the transfer market as well as they lost forward Adrien Hunou (undisclosed) to Angers, defenseman Chase Gasper (allocation) to the LA Galaxy, and midfielder Jan Gregus (allocation) to the San Jose Earthquakes.
Since joining the MLS back on November 29, 2016, the Minnesota United FC have only had one coach: Adrian Heath. As of this writing, he has an 80-39-82 record (39.8 win percentage) and has continued to grow with the team as they continue their MLS journey.
