MINNEAPOLIS (AP) After almost two full years as a Major League Soccer franchise, Minnesota United FC has been an unquestionably successful draw in a crowded sports market.

The Loons have more than 50,000 tickets sold and distributed for their final home game of the season to prove it.

When Minnesota hosts a Los Angeles team that needs a win Sunday to stay in contention the Western Conference playoffs, superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the Galaxy will be the target of more than twice the usual jeers from the crowd at TCF Bank Stadium. The Loons have averaged about 22,000 fans per game, the seventh-most in the 23-team MLS .
