Chris Wright

Minnesota United

Chris Wright joined Minnesota United in October of 2017 as the club’s first Chief Executive Officer. Following 27 years working for the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx, it marked a return to his soccer roots as a player and coach in his native England. As President of the Wolves and Lynx, Wright oversaw major projects including the Target Center renovation and the development of Mayo Clinic Square. He brought that experience to the successful launch of Allianz Field, Minnesota United’s privately-financed, $250 million soccer-specific stadium in Saint Paul.
