Minneapolis, Minn. — Minneapolis City will be traveling to Valley Stadium in Des Moines to take on one of the very best amateur teams in the country, PDL powerhouse–and vanquishers of Minnesota United in the 2014 U.S. Open Cup–Des Moines Menace.

“They were fantastic hosts last year for the pre-season scrimmages” said Managing Director Dan Hoedeman “we have a great relationship with them, and we want to test ourselves against the best.”

It is a purposeful break in the NPSL North Conference schedule for City and will ensure that, like last season, the Crows are facing opposition of the highest quality.

“The Menace typically host crowds of 2-3,000, and while we can’t out-number them we can surely out-sing them” said Business Director Sarah Schreier. “We will definitely out-tifo them.”

Tickets will be available later in the spring online at menacesoccer.com
