Allianz Field is a soccer-specific stadium located in Saint Paul, Minnesota. It is home to Minnesota United FC of Major League Soccer (MLS). Construction of Allianz Field began on December 12th, 2016, and was completed in February 2019. The stadium opened two months later on April 13th, 2019, and has a seating capacity of 19,400.

On October 23rd, 2015, team owners announced that Minnesota United would build a stadium on the 35-acre Saint Paul bus barn site.

Allianz Field was designed by Populous, a global architectural firm. The stadium boasts the latest in amenities and technology while also being sustainably designed to minimize environmental impact and energy usage. Its elegant “flow” design concept features LED lighting throughout the facility. The 360-degree canopy over the bowl protects fans and players from the elements, reduces light and noise from spilling into the neighbourhood, and creates an intimate and intimidating home pitch atmosphere.
