Talon is Always a Winner
Talon won the annual FOX 5 Mascot Madness Shootout in historic fashion over Screech after taking down Mason and Slapshot! Come give the big bird a high five for shaking his tailfeathers to victory on the hard court!
D.C. United vs. Columbus Crew
Saturday, March 23rd
Tailgate in Lot 8 begins at 11:30am
We will all flock together early Saturday for more fun and futbol!
We Listened to You
The Pope is not the only one who can show his futbol loyalties! In case you missed it, you can get your authentic DCU gear emblazoned with one of our supporters’ club patches thanks to Nathan’s crew at the Team Store for Free!
Now, there is even more terrific news! Responding to member feedback, Kevin has opened our very own online store to make it easier for you to grab your SE Gear and so much more!
Whether you want one of the scarves from our collection, 2013 membership, latest match ticket or even pre-order a tailgate pass to save you standing in line, we have tried to make it easier for you to order in advance.
Feel free to pass along your comments or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org after trying out the new store yourself.
Invite Your Friends
We could also use your assistance in spreading the word far and wide about the tailgate and match this Saturday. After seeing the sea of empty blue seats at Red Bull Arena, we don’t want to be lumped in with THAT lot on national television!
For those of you on Facebook, we have set up a Crush the Crew Event that we hope you will use to invite your circle of friends. However, please use whatever method of communication you can to get the word out. We’ll even settle for carrier pigeons if it brings faces new and old to the grounds!
Just Waiting for You
This is your tailgate tent and all it needs is a few hands to make it feel loved!
We could still use a few folks to volunteer to make the Brau & Brats tailgate a mega success. Please send a note to Thea at email@example.com if you’re willing to help out with set-up, beverage area or grilling. Not only do you get first crack at the food and drinks for free, but Jeff is going to smoke a pastrami just for the volunteers!
For the Young and Young at Heart
We have a number of different seating options at the stadium, but we wanted to highlight one that you might not be familiar with for this match. Section 139 (aka “The Aerie”) is one that kids can have a blast in while watching a match. If you have children that want to get right up close to the action, this might be the place for you.
Since the Crew match is a mid-afternoon game, this might be the perfect opportunity for you to encourage friends with youngsters to come out to RFK and get the experience that will make them fans for life!
The special bonus is that all proceeds from the sale of tickets in this section goes to our support of United for D.C.’s Kicks for Kids program which gives the opportunity of a unique game-day experience for thousands of urban, inner-city and under-served youth throughout the Greater Washington, D.C. region each season.
