Out With a Bang, Not With a Whimper
The team won't take the field again until next season and the supporters' flags have all been put away, but that does not mean that D.C. United fans are going into hibernation.
Far from it!
The calendar is already filling with activities to bring the Black and Red family together during the off-season.
From community outreach efforts to social gatherings, our members will be as busy as ever over the coming weeks.
Whether you are new to the club or a long-time member, we hope to see you hop right in!
All are Welcome to join in the fun and you can even get a jump on 2019 membership.
Time to Dig In Again
Black and Red fans have a long tradition of showing off our green thumbs while helping the community!
Join us again with our friends from the Earth Conservation Corps on Saturday as we dig right in to help our Buzzard Point neighbors.

DC SCORES and More
Bummed at the knockout match result, but we were thrilled to have been able to help so many DC SCORES poet-athletes and volunteers experience Audi Field this season in the Aerie (Section 138)!
There are numerous other ways to support the kids and our favorite charity, beginning with three successive days of the DC SCORES Poetry Slam at different schools next week!
Giving Tuesday is also coming up on November 27th! You can see how much of an impact last year's effort made, and get tickets for Our Words Our City at Studio Theatre.
