Kevin and Pam Led the Way
Plenty has been said about the news that Kevin Payne has left D.C. United to attempt to lead Toronto F.C. out of their morass. Kevin was a huge reason why the supporters’ culture has had such great success here in D.C. and no club had such a stalwart fighter who would go to the mat for the Black & Red.
We want to take a moment to highlight what we consider one of the most important legacies that the Paynes have left with us. Under Kevin’s continual prodding, this club has not just talked the talk, but walked the walk when it comes to serving the community.
The Paynes were not just part of our soccer family, but tried at every opportunity to make that family stronger. We are forever in their debt!
Let’s Create Some Smiles
Nowhere is that more evident than in all the programs that United for D.C. is involved in throughout our community. During the holiday season their activities ramp up and we are thrilled to be able to support them!
This Saturday is a perfect opportunity to come out and celebrate their efforts with fellow fans. We have a proud tradition of hosting a toy drive happy hour to assist United for D.C.’s efforts to fill Santa’s bag for D.C. Congresswomen Eleanor Holmes Norton’s annual holiday party for needy children.

The Sale that Shall Not be Named
There is so much to discuss about at this event and, for those interested, the MLS Cup will be playing on the giant screen and you never know who might pop in.
From changes to the squad like Josh Wolff’s retirement to Don Garber’s State of the League comments there is plenty to chew on to keep us occupied while we await the Annual Equipment Sale on Dec.15th.
So whether you want to share your thoughts on what should be the name of the club in the new women’s league or how you think our Americans abroad are faring, come join the fun this Saturday and add your two cents!
