Winds of Change Blow for D.C. United

What fun at RFK

Breeze You Feel is All Black & Red

Results have fallen Olsen’s Army’s way last night in international play in a big way! With Pachuca’s shock loss, D.C. United wraps up the top seed in Concacaf Champions’ League. Get ready for a roadtrip to Costa Rica next year to play Alajuelense in the first leg of the quarterfinals!

Winds of change are clearly blowing thru the Nation’s Capital this SEason as United has wrapped up an impressive double – CCL top dog to go along with MLS Eastern Conference #1.

Let's Make Some Noise

Fans Ready to Make Some Noise

That whoosh you hear is the sound of Semifinal home leg playoff tickets going out the window! We may not know who our opponent is yet, but that is not stopping supporters from snagging their seats.

D.C. United vs. ???
Saturday, November 8th 
2:30pm
Venerable Estadio RFK

Tickets in our sections are running out, so get on board and order them online at SESTore.net before they are swept away.

Andy Najar

Andy is Living the Dream

The Black & Red family is bursting with pride at seeing young Andy Najar become the first homegrown player to score a goal in Champions’ League play. Scoring against Arsenal on the big stage even has implications for his first home team as his play has attracted bigger clubs than Anderlecht.

D.C. United may yet reap a windfall from his sell-on clause. We wish the best for his continued success in his European adventure!
