The Loon Wristband
Show your support for the pride of Minnesota while remembering an epic win in the Open Cup.
After a difficult first two years in the big leagues, Minnesota’s 2019 season was a revelation. On top of a much-improved performance in the league, they also put together a nice run in the Open Cup. After powering past Kansas City, Houston, and cinderellas New Mexico, the Loons landed a semifinal date with Portland. A Darwin Quintero penalty in the 22nd-minute gave the hosts a lead, but the ax men leveled in first-half injury time. However, their lead was restored for good when Mason Toye cooly finished a Minnesota counter in the 64th minute, sending Minnesota’s club to their first major tournament final.
The match side of the wristband sits over the meandering stretch of the Mississippi River that spans between the Twin Cities. On the reverse, a design featuring the famous bird from which the club — and this wristband — take its nickname.
