With one regular season match still left to play, the Richmond Kickers are the USL PRO regular season champions! After beating Orlando City SC 2-0 yesterday, the Kickers have secured home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Throughout the season, D.C. United has loaned six players to its USL PRO affiliate, building a mutually beneficial relationship. Andrew Dykstra, Conor Shanosky, Michael Seaton, Taylor Kemp, Casey Townsend and Collin Martin all featured for the Kickers this year.
The D.C. love between the Nationals and the Black-and-Red continues. Yesterday, we blogged about Bryce Harper sporting a D.C. United jersey during an interview.
A message from Volkswagen:
Volkswagen supports soccer players at all levels and fans across the world . Whatever the level, these players/fans have one thing in common: they “Never Stop Playing”, they “Never Stop Cheering”. Volkswagen has the most vehicles on the road with over 100,000 miles…they “Never Stop Running."
Bryce Harper recently wore his number 34 D.C. United jersey in his weekly sit-down interview with CSN Washington.
"Of course I’m going to rep anything I can from the D.C. area. I’m very excited to see them play, maybe sometime soon," Harper said.
