Next Tuesday is #GivingTuesday, a global opportunity to "Help others through the gift of your time, donations, goods or your voice". DC SCORES will be accepting donations, and marking the day with a very special event!

Ready, Player One?
This week, D.C. United has announced that they will join Major League Soccer's EA Sports FIFA League, eMLS, for the 2019 season! (en Español) The schedule has not been released as of yet - stay tuned.

Captain Rooney and the Three Lions roared in the face of the USMNT last week, defeating the Red, White and Blue by a 3-0 margin. While the match did see Christian Pulisic's return to the squad after a six-month absence, there wasn't much else for USA fans to cheer about.
The U.S. fared little better in yesterday's match against Italy, falling to a late goal despite a heroic effort from GK Ethan Horvath. We are definitely not going to make snarky remarks about how multiple United players were left off of this roster.
Perhaps even more newsworthy than Tuesday's loss was the story from Sports Illustrated's Grant Wahl: apparently US Soccer turned down a chance to interview former Real Madrid and Spain coach Julen Lopetegui when he approached them about coaching the team.
We're thankful for all of the new members who joined this year, and all of you who've returned season after season. Haven't joined up for 2019 yet? Now's your chance - membership makes a great holiday gift!
We've got lots planned for this off-season, so keep up with us on social media for the latest on our events, as well as links to interesting soccer news and articles. We're on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
