Minnesota United announced today a multi-year partnership with SPIRE Credit Union, naming SPIRE the official credit union of Minnesota United.
As part of SPIRE Credit Union's commitment to giving back, SPIRE supports organizations that improve the culture and well-being of our communities. Minnesota United is the first top division professional soccer team in Minnesota in 40 years with a stated purpose of inspiring and uniting the community through the world’s game. In myriad ways, both SPIRE and Minnesota United share the goal of welcoming all and supporting the communities they are a part of.
“Having worked in the Twin Cities business community for decades, I’ve long admired and respected the way SPIRE gives back to the community,” said MNUFC CEO Chris Wright. “As we seek to take our place not only in the Twin Cities but in the world’s game with the construction of Allianz Field, we’ve looked for partners and leaders who share our own vision and commitment to elevating the community through teamwork, respect and inclusiveness. For this, SPIRE and its leader Dan Stoltz was a natural fit.”
Now in its third season in MLS, MNUFC opened its new home, the state-of-the-art Allianz Field, on April 13 in Saint Paul. The privately-financed stadium will not only be a home for soccer in the Upper Midwest, but a beacon for the community as well and a catalyst for the redevelopment of the historic Midway neighborhood. A permanent SPIRE sign will be featured on the west side of the stadium above the Premium Stack.
