Club nearing RFK lease agreement
With United’s March 10 home opener against Sporting Kansas City less than five weeks away, the organization is close to announcing a lease agreement with Events DC for the upcoming season at RFK Stadium, club president Kevin Payne said Monday.
“We obviously awkwardly have not made a formal announcement about that yet,” he said. “But given the timing, I think it’s safe to assume we’ll be playing at RFK.”
In regard to United’s search for a permanent home, Payne said the Maryland General Assembly will discuss this legislative session further studying a new stadium project in Baltimore.
In the meantime, though, United continue to talk with officials in the District, and Payne noted the organization last week had a meeting with D.C. Council Chairman Kwame R. Brown.
“We’re confident the District of Columbia and its leadership wants us to remain here and wants to find a way to work with us to accomplish that,” Payne said. “We continue to work on parallel tracks.”
