1st and R Street, SW
Last Friday’s question about what should be done with RFK got me thinking about the proposed new DC United stadium at Buzzard Point in SW. There is a nice new website set up called Unite DC explaining the proposal and calling for your support (with a sweet rendering too):
I’ll say it straight away, I love soccer and would be psyched if this new stadium was built. But I’m also curious – how many soccer fans does DC have? Would a new stadium encourage new fans? Do you think we could fill a 20,000-25,000-seat soccer stadium? So today I’m just curious – how many folks have been to a DC United game? Any regulars? For those who haven’t been, do you think you would go to a game at the new stadium?
For those that do support the stadium, you can add your name here. A couple more shots of how the site looks today:
