Governor Dayton declares March 12th “Soccer Day”

I mean, every day is Soccer Day at E Pluribus Loonum

MLS: Minnesota United FC-Press Conference Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

In a symbolic move, Governor Mark Dayton has declared March 12th, 2017 to be “Soccer in Minnesota Day”. In a show of solidarity with the Loons, Minnesotans and fans everywhere are encouraged to wear United Black and Blue all day.

The declaration recognizes the fact that soccer is the “World’s Game” and that Minnesota has a history of soccer dating back to the Kicks and now with United.

Minnesota may be the State of Hockey, but for tomorrow, it will be a state focused on soccer.


Keep with E Pluribus Loonum all day on March 12th for Game Day coverage from where you are watching!
