In 2013, Bennett stepped onto the Dethloon Express and rode through the soccer wormhole into a dimension populated by NASL heroes and golden-hearted hooligans waiving homemade flags, banging bass drums, and modifying pop hits of yesteryear to be about their favorite midfielder. The supporters groups of the day were loud, weird, small, loyal, fiercely independent, and possessed of an undeniably special energy. He’s been hooked ever since.
Bennett wants to help Minnesota’s supporters groups grow bigger, stronger, and more independent, and believes the incredible vitality of soccer can burst out of the stands and be a force for positive and progressive change in the community.
He is also a lawyer and a member of the Red Loons steering committee.
Bennet's term ends March 2021.
