NASL’s Minnesota United (Fun Fact: They were just recognized as one of the Twin Cities best emerging businesses http://www.mnunitedfc.com/news/detail/uuid/8xzgeefaib0l1ekbg8v9xbjpn/minnesota-united-fc-recognized-as-best-emerging-business#.UzGpCWRgZy9 ) went to St. George’s Park, the training facility for the English national soccer teams, for their pre-season training. A very innovative idea but also a very costly one as the Minnesota United most likely do not have the biggest budget to utilize. However, it is ideas such as this that point to why many see them as one of the next new MLS expansion franchises because of how forward-thinking and committed they are towards expanding their brand and improving their team. For many of these players this trip has been one of the best memories of their lives and hopefully it will serve as great motivation heading into their 2014 season.
