Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Several professional soccer players from the Minnesota United will be in Duluth, Minn. on Sunday afternoon, part of the Kick It Duluth soccer expo meant to highlight the area's youth soccer programs and help grow the sport in the northern part of the state.
For the United players, it will double as a chance to connect with young fans in a place that's not the Twin Cities.
"I think it's good, reaching out to people out of the city because it's refreshing to see that they also love the sport and they want to know about us," United midfielder Mozesh Gyorio said. "I think it's always good to keep them involved."
The Kick It Duluth soccer expo will run from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon at the Duluth Heritage Sports Center, with NNCNOW.com personalities Zach Schneider and Sarah Wheeler scheduled to take part in the festivities.
