Fans share their #LastCallatRFK memories

October 22nd was a special day for long-time D.C. United fans and Washington, D.C. as a whole as the Black-and-Red closed out their run at RFK Stadium. From the Lot 8 tailgates to making the stands bounce one last time, Sunday was a bittersweet goodbye to one of the most iconic buildings in American soccer. Throughout the week and during the #LastCallatRFK weekend, fans took to social media to share their favorite memories from the venue. Here are some of the best.

#lastcallatrfk too many memories to even begin but here are a few pics from waaaay back that my husband just dug up. MLS Cup '97, hurricane game vs Tampa Bay, my nieces making confetti from the old programs, horns before they were banned, game vs Leeds when I had a fever, Presthus's contact falling out, Olympics USA v Portugal and Italy v Ghana, Milan v Barcelona, USA v Jamaica, Cienfuegos, Valderama, Stoichkov, Paolo Maldini, Javier Zanetti, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, meeting the team after MLS Cup '96 Jesse Marsch on crutches, "ooh ahh Johnny Harkes", "Goooooose", Meet the team days, autograph sessions, taking my kids to their first games at 19 days and 16 days old. The bouncing, the cement falling, the raccoon, Jaime's orange hair before he successfully bleached it, referring to games as "going to see Bobby" in reference to Bobby Convey, flags from Bolivia, El Salvador, Argentina and on and on..... Arriving at RFK and feeling like coming home. It won't be the same anywhere else.
