Since Minnesota United concluded their final North American Soccer League season a few months ago, many former Loons that are not making the leap to Major League Soccer are finding new homes elsewhere.
Longtime United defender Brian Kallman has signed with local supporter-owned Minneapolis City SC. Affectionately known as the “people’s club,” Minneapolis City SC announced this morning in a press release that Kallman would join their squad.
"Brian is a great player," said Sporting Director Jon Bisswurm "and he brings a level of experience that will help our younger players. There is nothing like training with and learning from a guy who knows what it takes to make it as a pro."
While United continue to work on building a new team for their MLS debut, Minneapolis City is similarly working to build its roster ahead of a step up to the National Premier Soccer League this spring.
Kallman, a United veteran that made 153 appearances for the Loons between 2006 and 2015, looks like a fantastic addition for the growing club. In addition to being a seasoned defender that should bring stability and strength to City’s back line, Kallman brings locker room leadership to a burgeoning organization.
Minneapolis City will take the field against the likes of Duluth FC, Sioux Falls Thunder FC, Med City FC, and more. See the full NPSL team list here.
Kallman’s signing comes on the heels of another former Loon moving on to another team as Greg Jordan signed with the San Francisco Deltas just days ago.
