Episode 9

Chris Wright of Minnesota United

“We need to inspire and unite people from around the globe who call the Twin Cities home. People who come from places with a national club. WE must become relevant. We must become their club.”

On this episode of Fired Up, Chris Wright, Chief Executive Officer for Minnesota United, provides great insights on how he ensures community involvement by connecting with the neighborhood – and making a difference in the community.

As the club’s first Chief Executive Officer, Chris was brought on in large part to spearhead the successful launch of Allianz Field, Minnesota United’s privately financed, $250 million soccer-specific stadium in Saint Paul. He oversees the business and sporting sides of the club in his role as CEO. Chris brings with him 27 years of experience with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx, including 13 years as President where he oversaw major projects including the Target Center renovation and the development of Mayo Clinic Square. Joining MNUFC also meant a return to his soccer roots as a player and coach in his native England.
