RFK Stadium – Come on DC, you can do better.
I get it, America. Soccer just isn’t our sport. Someday, we say. If only the games were more exciting with more goals, we say.
That’s fine. But…
That someday has come. That exciting game is this Saturday.
Your DC United squad is playing for their MLS Cup playoff lives.
They are down 2-0 to the New York Red Bulls in their two-game aggregate playoff series.
They need to win 2-0, to force a tie and overtime. Or 3-0 to win the series outright.
DC United must score a lot of goals. Exciting for everyone.
Soccer attendance will always take a back seat to other professional sports, but if your team is the 3rd best team in Major League Soccer and making a run on its 5th championship (which would be a record), then you better take notice.
Saturday is the day. Tickets are available. Show your support.
