DCU leadership "very hopeful" about prospect of new stadium

D.C. United Managing Partner Jason M. Levien told The Washington Post’s Steven Goff that the club’s leadership is “very hopeful” about the prospect of reaching a deal with Washington, D.C. to build a soccer stadium in the city for the Black-and-Red:

Levien said: “The stars are aligning in a good way for us. We’re working closely with the right people and we feel better about it today than we did three months ago, no question.”

“Interaction with the city has been very positive and very productive,” Levien said. “We’re pushing the right buttons and making things happen in a good way. … There is more than hope. We are very hopeful.”

“We greatly appreciate [Baltimore’s] interest and outreach,” he said, “but our focus is here. Our fans deserve our focus to be here and that is guiding us right now.”
