In today's Local section of the Washington Post, the paper gives fans and supporters an opportunity to voice their opinion about D.C. United's new stadium plans. The question posed is, "Should D.C. United and the city agree to build a stadium at Buzzard Point in Southwest D.C.?" As of now, the overwhelming majority (86%) has voted yes. While we await a council vote, the Post is providing fans and residents a place to let their voices be heard.
When D.C. United takes the field for tonight’s game against the New England Revolution, the team will be doing so on a fresh pitch. The re-sodding process began two weeks ago following United’s international friendly against Chivas de Guadalajara, and a maintenance crew has been working around the clock to install the new turf.
Before D.C. United kicks off its game against the New England Revolution, fans at RFK Stadium will be treated to a special rendition of the national anthem from Lissette Escobar of Montgomery County. The recent graduate of Richard Montgomery High School has been a member of the Madrigal Choir at St. Mary’s Catholic Church and even had the opportunity to sing Mass in the Vatican during a school trip to Italy. A long-time fan of D.C.
D.C. United's long and challenging search for a home of its own, has been a whirlwind. Each day a new prospect, another hurdle. A single constant has stood by in confident support, and with unwavering passion. That constant has been our fans.
It is with deep pride and an overwhelming sense of gratitude that we present this week's #TBT in honor of the best fans in MLS. We are here to stay.
