The Minneapolis City Head Coach began his tenure with the club as U23 Head Coach and NPSL Assistant Coach in 2017, when the club won the North Conference title. He took over the leadership role in 2018 and proceeded to win the North Conference title again, and the club’s first playoff game.

Formerly an assistant under Jeremy Iwaszkowiec at Bethel University and currently also coaching with Fusion SC, vanBenschoten fuses his soccer knowledge with a deep understanding of people. No doubt his Masters in Marriage & Family Therapy comes into play there. The result is an effective and talented young coach with a big future.

“Working with only local players and getting the results we’ve gotten is pretty damn rewarding.” – Matt vanBenschoten
