Late word came last night that a deal was in the works between D.C. United and all the supporters' groups to fill Audi Field together. Although there is much heavy lifting yet to be done, we are optimistic that all sides will make it work in order to support the team and to create a vibrant atmosphere at home and on the road!
Given newfound freedom under the partnership by United Managing General Owner Jason Levien, and in an effort to include all supporters' groups in the North Stands, the Screaming Eagles organization has offered to sell fifty general admission season tickets at cost to the District Ultras and La Barra Brava for use this year.
We are thrilled that La Barra Brava and the District Ultras will be taking their rightful place in the north stands at Audi Field. Together, we will build the strongest home support in MLS!
Stay tuned - we will issue a more detailed response once we have confirmation that all supporters' groups have signed off on the agreement.
Atlanta on Deck
There's plenty to dig into before during and after this afternoon's watch parties for the big match in Atlanta! Three points are on the line on the road for D.C. United as they face Yamil Asad's old squad in front of another huge crowd.
Come join us this afternoon and take in all the action while sharing camaraderie with futbol friends!

Inaugural Game for DC SCORES Supporters' Academy
Our strong relationship with nonprofit DC SCORES, as well as our desire to form a “Supporters’ Academy” - in which DC SCORES students could attend D.C. United games free of charge and become part of D.C. supporters’ culture - has been a critical element in our partnership with D.C. United.
We remain committed to bringing the Supporters’ Academy concept to fruition, and the RBNY match will be the first time a group of these kids gets to enjoy it all!
We invite all members of the United community to join us in supporting DC SCORES and making these kids feel warmly welcomed by our supporters' community.

Dash to the Plex
Craving a live game this weekend? The Washington Spirit (our local pro women's team) are happy to oblige, with a game tonight against the Houston Dash.
Seats are still available, so grab a ticket (and a rain jacket), and head on over to the Plex tonight! It's Captain Estelle Johnson's birthday, so we expect she'll celebrate with one or two of her trademark perfect slide tackles - a sight not to be missed!
