D.C. United and Comcast SportsNet, the region’s leading source for multiplatform sports coverage, today announced plans to broadcast three additional August games. The matches will be aired as special presentations, courtesy of Volkswagen.
The addition of games against Toronto FC (August 6), Vancouver (August 13) and Portland (August 27) to the regional television schedule brings to 20 the number of live United games on the network this season. All three matches will kick-off at 7:30 p.m. ET.
WASHINGTON – When D.C. United and Toronto faced off back in April, DC registered an impressive 3-0 win at BMO Field.
However, United know that that result can’t be taken into account as the two teams prepare to play again at RFK Stadium Saturday night (7:30pm ET, Comcast SportsNet). The Toronto side traveling to the nation’s capital looks almost nothing like the one that DC defeated a few months ago.
The Junkies are four buddies from PG County, MD, who blew up on the WJFK airwaves starting in the summer of 1996. John Auville (Cakes), Eric Bickel (EB), Jason Bishop (Lurch) and John-Paul Flaim (JP) started a cable access tv show in Bowie in 1995 and since then they’ve taken over the coveted morning drive slot on 106.7 The Fan!
D.C. United return home following a victory, meeting Toronto FC on Saturday evening at RFK Stadium. United are coming their first victory at San Jose in more than a decade, a 2-0 defeat of the Earthquakes last weekend. Toronto FC ended a four-game league losing skid with a 2-2 draw at Portland last weekend, though they advanced to the group stage of the CONCACAF Champions League with a midweek win in Nicaragua.
