Well folks, it’s about that time. We’re halfway through D.C. United’s shortest offseason in its history and, coincidentally, exactly two months away from our home opener on Saturday, March 9 against Real Salt Lake. Not only that, but the full-season MLS schedule was just announced today, so there’s plenty to be excited about.

After D.C. United’s schedule was released, we decided to take a closer look and highlight some things you might have missed if you were just glancing through. One thing is consistent with this year’s schedule: it provides all United fans great opportunity to catch their club at RFK Stadium. Instead of multiple mid-week games last year, D.C. United only plays once on a Wednesday at home. Most home games are on Saturdays, and have an earlier time-slot at 7:00 instead of 7:30 (for non-nationally televised games). Check out more on the schedule below:

How was your holiday break?
Joe Willis: It’s been pretty awesome. Back in St. Louis for pretty much all of it, hanging out with my family, so it was a pretty good break.

Do you have a lot of friends who are still back in St. Louis?
JW: Yeah, a lot high school friends I hadn’t seen in a while, so it was good times.

So, when are you leaving for England?
JW: I’m leaving tonight – my flight is at 6:15 p.m.
