It was truly a day to unite! D.C. United's "A Day to Unite" event at Pinstripes in Georgetown was a great success thanks to our amazing Season Ticket Holders.
We revealed our primary kit for 2014 complete with a fashion show from the players, had new stadium renderings available to view, hosted a silent auction to benefit United for D.C., enjoyed bowling, bocce, food, and even a photo booth. The afternoon was spent giving our Season Ticket Holders and DCU players a chance to hang out together in a fun and unique setting.
Thank you to all the Season Ticket Holders who made this event so incredible. We are glad you enjoyed meeting this year's team and staff. We are grateful to have the best fans in MLS wearing Black-and-Red! Make sure you tag yourselves in our Facebook album from the photo booth.
The new jersey are on sale now at dcuteamstore.com.
D.C. United was not made aware of Simms' health issues until after the announcement of his retirement. We share the concern of all of Clyde's fans and send our thoughts his way in this tough time.
Clyde Simms gave it all for DCU. From 2005-2011, the talented midfielder made a significant impact with the Black-and-Red. It's a sad day when any player has to retire due to health reasons. We, as a club, would like to thank Clyde for his commitment to and passion for D.C. United and congratulate him on his wonderful and impressive career.
