In preparation for the upcoming 2013 NASL Fall Season, Minnesota United FC will travel north of the border for an international friendly against the Canadian PDL side Thunder Bay Chill on Tuesday at Chapples Park in Ontario at 7:30 p.m.
Manny Lagos’s side is coming off a 2-0 victory over fellow NASL rival FC Edmonton during the Schwan’s USA Cup Pro Classic held last week in Blaine, Minn.
Meanwhile, Thunder Bay closed out their PDL regular season with a 12-1-1 mark and is using the encounter against Minnesota as warm-up prior to hosting the Central Conference playoff tournament next weekend.
Minnesota United, who is aiming to improve its sixth place position from the Spring Season, is scheduled to open the NASL Fall Campaign on August 3, when they host the defending champion Atlanta Silverbacks at NSC Stadium at 8:00 p.m.
The encounter against the Silverbacks will be a rematch from the last game of the Spring Season where United lost at home 3-0 on July 4.
