Are you ready for some football (aka soccer) — and food?
Minnesota United on Wednesday unveiled the Allianz Field food lineup ahead of Saturday's stadium opener. The Loons hit the field at 4 p.m. when they take on New York City FC.

You'll be able to nosh on the standard nachos, burgers and popcorn found at many stadiums nationwide. But Minnesota United CEO Chris Wright said it was also important to incorporate the local diversity into Allianz's menu. Minnesota is home to large Hmong, Somali, Karen, Native American and Liberian communities.
We want to "inspire and unite our community through our diverse community," he said.
Among the global fare are jerk chicken wings from West Indies Soul Food, a vegan channa rice bowl from Hot Indian and veggie sambusas from Afro Deli.
The food and drink you can expect to find at @allianzfield this year for @MNUFC games! (A thread)— Nancy Yang (@n_yang) April 10, 2019

You'll also be able to get your fill from a number of food trucks parked outside the stadium — there will be between six and eight each game.
And if you're just in the mood for a quick snack, the stadium features two grab-and-go MNi Markets, where you can pick up sandwiches, drinks and chips.
Speaking of fast, only bottled or canned beer and pop will be available outside of the Brew Hall. It'll allow for fans to get back to their seats more quickly.
Here's a look at what you can chow down on if you make it to a soccer match at Allianz Field this season.
