Washington, D.C. (May 7, 2009) - D.C.

Gameday festivities are set to begin at 3:30 p.m. at Lincoln Park (East Capitol Street, NE between 11th and 13th Streets, NE), as fans will march to RFK Stadium in support of a new D.C. United stadium project. Details of the march and other game-day promotions are available at .

Broadcasting and P.A. Request: When speaking of the organization, please refer to the team as either “D.C. United” or “United,” but not “the D.C. United” or “the United.” We appreciate your cooperation.
