Thursday Training Notes
Focus on Friday
As the trophy is being set in its final resting place, D.C. United has to look towards tomorrow’s match. After winning the U.S. Open Cup on Tuesday night in Salt Lake, the Black-and-Red looks to play a spoiler role, as Chicago is fighting for a spot in the playoffs. Though momentum is in our favor, so are some heavy legs, so United will need to dig deep and put on a good performance for one of its last home matches of 2013.
Tomorrow night is College Night at RFK. That means those with a .edu email address can get a $20 ticket to watch the 2013 U.S. Open Cup Champs take on the Fire, the team they beat 2-0 in the semi-finals of the tournament on their home turf. Come celebrate the victory at RFK and enjoy the tailgate in Lot 8 before the match! For College Night tickets, click here.
