Chris Wright

CEO, Minnesota United

Chris Wright joined Minnesota United in October of 2017. As the club’s first Chief Executive Officer, he was brought on in large part to spearhead the successful launch of Allianz Field, Minnesota United’s privately financed, $250 million soccer-specific stadium in Saint Paul. He brought with him 27 years of experience with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx, including 13 years as President where he oversaw major projects including the Target Center renovation and the development of Mayo Clinic Square. Joining MNUFC also meant a return to his soccer roots as a player and coach in his native England.
