This is not an SE event, but we believe all interested supporters should have the opportunity to attend!
We'd also like to take this opportunity to welcome our newest board member: Jean Kasner! Many of you already know Jean, as she is a longtime member of the United supporter community. She is creative, thoughtful, and enthusiastic, and we are excited to have her! Jean replaces outgoing board member Danielle Lafave, who will continue her volunteer efforts helping to reorganize and facilitate our online presence.
For even more updates, have a look at our events calendar.

In the News
Wayne Rooney spent over 36 hours in Washington last week, including a long phone call with United coach Ben Olsen. Rooney visited Audi Field, had a sit-down with GM Dave Kaspar, and toured various neighborhoods and golf courses in the area. Sounds promising...
Speaking of Audi Field and its future, you are invited to a town hall meeting this Sunday, hosted by a group of fellow United supporters. This is not an official SE event, although there will be SE members in attendance. Visit the organizers' Twitter feed for more information.

United striker Darren Mattocks lived up to his promise to "rob the Banc" last weekend, as his late-game goal allowed the Black-and-Red to steal a point from LAFC.
In a wild game full of controversial calls (and non-calls), Paul Arriola was also a standout, earning himself a spot on the bench of the MLS Team of the Week.
