MLS is Back Back

Announcement has just been made that the 25th season of MLS is making it’s full return. The 1st six fixtures have been decided. Regular testing of the players, coaches and staff will also be a part of the return.

The 1st fixture for D.C. United will be a road game against FC Cincinnati on August 21st, 7:30pm ET/12:30am BST. We return to Audi Field (without fans I should add) for a match against New England Revolution on August 25th at 7pm ET/12am BST. The rest of the fixtures can be found here which includes two games against the Red Bulls.

Each club will play 18 additional regular season games in a phased approach, culminating with Decision Day on Sunday, Nov. 8. In an expansion of the postseason for 2020, 18 clubs will compete in the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs — up from 14 teams last year. MLS Cup will be played on Dec. 12.


The Journey Begins

Hello and welcome for landing here. If you’re wondering what this page is all about, well let me introduce myself first.

My name is James, I’m a Brit and I’m a DC United fan. I’m also a Middlesbrough fan too. I caught the MLS bug many years ago now, a little bit when the legendary Jaime Moreno was playing, but more so when Freddy Adu first came about. Thank you to the management game Football Manager, this gave me a great insight into how MLS works, from things like the salary cap, to the SuperDraft, to the MLS Playoffs. And now, MLS is even on Sky Sports in the UK, so I get to see my team play live on TV. But nothing beats being there.

The Tailgate

That picture is me in the middle, my wife and then Joe on the left. This was my 1st taste of MLS in real life. An absolutely great experience and one that left me with memories that will last a lifetime. I joined up with the Screaming Eagles and their tailgate event. I got in touch with them through Instagram and they welcomed us both with open arms. They showed us around, brought us to the stadium and were incredibly friendly. Friends for life I say. The bug has been gnawing away at me though and I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while. Now I’ve gone ahead and done it. So I hope you join me on this journey, become not just DC United fans, but MLS fans in general too. I cannot wait to be back there in April and I’ll be keeping this updated throughout the season and years to come. So without much else to say, I’ll leave you with one thing.

VAMOS United!!!!
