MLS36 with Dwayne De Rosario on NBC
In the days before D.C. United’s game with Philadelphia on 8/19, NBC Sports was granted unprecedented access to 2011 MLS MVP Dwayne De Rosario. The feature chronicles the 36 hours prior to a game, and all of the prep that goes along with it, for De Rosario. De Rosario will be the third feature in the series, which has already gone through 36 hours with Chris Wondolowski of the Earthquakes and Fredy Montero of the Sounders. Make sure and tune in to NBC Sports Network at 7:00pm ET on Wednesday night to catch this one of a kind feature.
ESPN2 Feature on Andy Najar
United defender-midfielder and Edison High School (Alexandria, VA) standout Andy Najar has one of the most compelling stories in all of soccer – from his family background, to his unique abilities that has seen him spend valuable minutes in international competition as well as being one of the most exciting young players around. ESPN joined Andy at a few training sessions this summer to sit down and tell that story. Make sure and check it out during the pre-game show for D.C. United v Philadelphia Union on Thursday at 8:00pm ET on ESPN2.
We Live Soccer
Earlier in the summer, FOX Soccer spent some time in and around not only RFK Stadium, but the Greater Washington area to pull together a new and fresh look at soccer and culture in D.C. The crew spent times with D.C. United players like Dwayne De Rosario and Chris Pontius, and even spent some time in the stands of RFK Stadium during a game. Tune in on Monday, September 24th at 7:30pm ET to see the special.
