We're halfway through D.C. United's shortest offseason ever

By Sarah Lerner

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.
 
March is sneaking up on us, and we like it.

Below is the duration between each season. We measured it by examining the club’s final regular-season or playoff (if applicable) game and the first MLS match of the ensuing campaign.

1997 to 1998: 140 days
1998 to 1999: 146 days

2000 to 2001: 210 days
