Minneapolis City SC, whose season begins on May 13th, have officially released their roster for 2017. The Crows have 26 Minnesotan players on the roster, along with another four developmental players.

Minneapolis City SC is looking to build on a successful 2016 season that left them one spot in the table short of the playoffs with 3 wins, 4 draws, and 3 defeats in the Premier League of America. Outside of league play, the Crows won both friendly matches and beat Oakland County FC in their USOC Qualifier match.

Multiple players will return from the 2016 campaign along with many new, but familiar faces. The Crows are already the heavy favorite to win the NPSL North this season as they have moved from the PLA and this roster definitely strengthens that theory.
