Since the team's inception in 1996, a new, soccer-specific home has been #1 on D.C. United's wish list. Almost two decades later, United is still stuck in the half-century-year-old former home of the Redskins.
"Without question this should have happened long ago. D.C. United set the standard for so many things in Major League Soccer. The league is thriving today in large part because of United's passionate support that matched its jammed trophy case. Support that has never wavered even through difficult times. D.C. United has proudly represented the nation's capital on a world stage--soccer is the world's game---and is deserving of a facility to match its first class standing." -Dave Johnson, CSN
