By Ryan Tronovitch

With a win or tie tonight, United will tie its streak of 13 unbeaten at home

With one of D.C. United’s biggest home games tonight against the New York Red Bulls, what better place to play the game than at RFK Stadium, in front of the best fans in Major League Soccer.

It has been a goal of the Black-and-Red all season to take back RFK. Signs hang in the locker room, the team tunnel, and elsewhere reminding the team that its important to make RFK a difficult place to play.
