“Technical Issues” Leave MN Soccer Fans Upset During World Cup
Minnesota soccer fans gathered at St. Paul's Allianz Field were left upset after the TV's went out moments before the US took the lead.
Hundreds of fans came out to watch the women's World Cup final between the USA and Netherlands Sunday morning at Allianz Field's Brew Hall in St. Paul.
Tied 0-0 at half time, the US finally took the lead at the 61st minute with a penalty kick by Megan Rapinoe. Unfortunately, the fans watching at Alliance Field missed it because all the TV's went out two minutes before.
According to the Twitter thread, fans were left streaming the game on their cell phones and devices, though the Brew Hall did eventually get half of the TVs working again.
Allianz Field did tweet out an apology, citing "technical issues."
Apparently, the technical issues weren't the only issues of the day, however, with fans who were there also complaining about poor service.
Construction of Allianz Field in St. Paul was completed April 13, 2019 and serves as the new home of Minnesota's professional MLS men's team Minnesota United FC. USA went on to defeat Netherlands 2-0 and win the World Cup title for the fourth time.
