It's finally here: Allianz Field's opening day and Minnesota United's return home after it played the season's first five games on the road.

If you missed it in print (highly recommended) or online, here's our Allianz Field special section that ran Friday. You find the link here.

There's lots and lots happening today with a 4 p.m. kick, so get there early and enjoy all the festivities.

GETTING THERE: Coming and going from a site without a lot of surface parking will be something to monitor these first few home games. United and the City of St. Paul has put together a plan to provide "safe and sustainable" transportation to Allianz Field on gamedays, from Park and Ride at the state fairgrounds to Metro Transit. Check out the options here.

    11:30 a.m. Shuttle bus from State Fairgrounds begins. Bus leaves every 10- 15 minutes.
