    I think that the womens soccer league in this country draws more fans. Maybe they will go for that.

    I think a soccer team would be awesome to have in Minnesota. Obviously, soccer is gay, but for some reason people seem to like it.

    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

    I think it would be cool for the MLS to go to Minnesota. I have never really latched on to soccer, but I do watch a few Team USA matches a year and follow them throughout their various tournaments (only the main national team, none of the U-whatever teams). I live in D.C. where the United have a decent following, but still have never taken the time to go to a game.
    It is a sport that has room to grow in the states, and I would like to see us more competitive world wide ... so the more teams added to the mix, the more interest it might generate in younger kids to pursue the sport.

    If we could field a team like this I am sure the Wilfs could pack the stadium all season long.

    And then an open air stadium, where the the girls would be playing in the rain & cold, would make absolute sense.

    Vikings want a soccer team

    Soccer in MN!? Lol what makes them think that would work? Phoenix should get one before MN. High Spanish population and the numbers. It will fail just like the Vikings do every year.
