D.C. United to commemorate those who lost their lives at Navy Yard

DCU will wear armbands in memory of the victims and in support of their families

In response to Monday's tragic events at Navy Yard, United will be wearing black armbands tonight against the Revolution to commemorate those who lost their lives on Monday. D.C. United extends its thoughts and well wishes to the victims and their families.

Additionally, D.C. United is creating an opportunity through which the team, corporate partners and fans may provide tickets for the October 4th match to service men and women, as well as others who work at the location. This is an opportunity for all plan holders to donate any unused 2013 tickets to benefit those impacted. All donated tickets must be received by Friday, September 26.

We’ll work with various parties to coordinate distribution of tickets to those affected by the events at the Navy Yard.  To donate unused tickets call D.C. United Customer Cervice at 202-287-5000.
