Come Celebrate with Friends
Summer soccer heats up on Sunday when our hated rivals return to RFK from the swamps of Jersey.
Perfect time to bring all your friends with you to catch a special afternoon match over the holiday weekend.
D.C. United vs. Red Bull New York
Sunday, August 31st
Our midfield supporters’ seats are selling out quickly, so we have added more sections for you and your gang to join Olsen’s Army! Nicole, our fab ticketmistress, will take your order online at SEStore.net as we prepare to do a little Pink Cow tossing at RFK!!
Flashback Jersey Time
Mike Petke leads the current batch of ruffians from Harrison, but for a brief spell between the stink of the MetroStars and Red Bull, he helped bring us a trophy. For that we will always have a soft spot in our hearts and this match is a perfect opportunity to dig out the old “Wanker 12″ t-shirt from the closet.
In fact, any jersey from the past will do as we honor the MLS Cup Champion 2004 side. After all, what better way to rub Pink Cow noses in the muck of their ignominious history of playoff failure?!! So sport your favorite Black & Red article of clothing with panache at the stadium on Sunday.
While You Relax in Lot 8
Come out early to enjoy the cornucopia of treats at our “Tears for Thierry” Tailgate! Lot 8 opens at 10:30 am and we will have plenty of good stuff on tap for fans to enjoy.
Spend a moment at our info tent learning about how you can take part in the two September golf outings for charity, hop on a bus for the Harrison return leg or how you can help join UniteDC.org in the push for a stadium at Buzzard Point.
Please also consider giving back to the community by helping United Drives by dropping off new school supplies at Gate A to donate to D.C. Public Schools.
