When Major League Soccer (MLS) was created in the mid-1990s, Washington, DC was awarded the first franchise in 1994. Two years later DC United began playing, and led by superstars such as Eddie Pope, Jaime Moreno and Marco Etcheverry, won three out of the first four MLS Cups. Two of those championships were won under Coach Bruce Arena, who went on to become the head coach of the U.S. National Team.
The team has played its home games at RFK Stadium since 1996, an historic stadium where the Washington Redskins, Washington Senators and Washington Nationals have all played at one time during its 50-plus years.
A winner of 12 domestic and international trophies, D.C. United is the most successful team in United States soccer history. United matches are played at historic RFK Stadium in the heart of the nation's capital. The Black-and-Red offer group pricing for executive, youth and corporate outings.
