It’s back!

After taking a season off to work on other projects, we are back with the 2017 edition of The Complete Darkness. Like the editions before it, The Complete Darkness chronicles a year of Minnesota United FC.Complete Darkness cover 2017

In 2017, Minnesota United FC moved from the lower divisions of American soccer to Major League Soccer. It was a season of disasters and triumphs.

A fateful scouting trip to Scandinavia, a hole in the Midway Earth, and the spreading wings of a Loons scouring network: the results in the snow and sun were only matched by the intrigue and craziness off the pitch.

The 2017 Complete Darkness looks back at the events and personalities that shaped an eventful year for Minnesota soccer. It features an in-depth look at one of the primary figures behind shaping the Loons’ roster, Amos Magee and the unlikely triumph of local boy, Brent Kallman. The book includes player bios and match recaps for the entire 2017 Minnesota United season.

Buy it now for $12. To be released at the end of January 2018.
