They’re at every D.C. United home game and even away games cheering on the Black-and-Red. Supporter Groups are a huge factor in creating an electric and intimidating atmosphere at RFK stadium. The District Ultras, La Norte and Club Echa Panza are regular attendees of D.C. United Academy home matches. They come out to these games with banners, flags, drums and an upbeat attitude to cheer on the Academy teams.

Our supporters, on the other hand, are much more creative.

United-related instances are among 20 contenders for the 2012 MLS Moment of the Year: Dwayne De Rosario's 100th MLS goal, the snowed-out playoff match at Red Bull Arena and MLS All-Stars defeating European champions Chelsea FC, with Ben Olsen as coach, De Rosario as captain and Chris Pontius selected as MVP.

The 2012 MLS season was a wonderful roller coaster ride which, sadly, came to an end one match too early.
All of us at D.C. United are extremely excited about our future. We have a wonderful, young group of players who will be the core of our team for many years to come. They were a group that fought for each other, and the club, against all odds, to make it to the conference championship. They have had a taste of success, and they can’t wait to get to work to achieve even more.
