Local soccer diehards best grab their favorite scarf and a vuvuzela. Casual fan, be sure to bring some earplugs. And for anyone who once scoffed at the idea of major, modern-day professional soccer in the Twin Cities, well, Mr. Don Garber and Dr. Bill McGuire have a message for you.

It's coming.

After more than a year of behind-the-scenes discussion and public speculation, Major League Soccer and local pro franchise Minnesota United FC made their accord official at a news conference Wednesday morning at Target Field. The McGuire-owned club becomes the league's 23rd confirmed franchise -- part of commissioner Garber's master plan to have at least 24 teams by the year 2020.

Minnesota will begin play in 2018.
