D.C. United Hosts Legends to Say Farewell

D.C. United enjoyed a nostalgia-filled season at RFK Stadium, ending their two-decade run at home in the stadium. Those decades were filled with triumph as the team emerged as one of the best in soccer. Fans enjoyed a look back at all the team experienced at RFK during the recent Legends Weekend. United invited all former players to return for three days of events celebrating the organization’s historic achievements at RFK. 

The weekend was filled with special events as D.C. United bid farewell to RFK Stadium. Fans watched their team's final training session at RFK the morning of Saturday, October 21. Select legends and first team players were available to enthusiastic fans seeking photos and autographs.

Prior to kickoff at the final RFK match, alumni played in a “Legends Match” on October 22. This Legends Match included former D.C. United players, coaches, and special guests who took to the field one final time at RFK. Alumni were available for media interviews and to fans for photos and autographs throughout the day.

Alumni in attendance included:

  • Jaime Moreno
  • Marco Etcheverry
  • Luciano Emilio
  • Christian Gomez
  • Alecko Eskandarian
  • Troy Perkins
  • Santino Quaranta
  • John Harkes
  • Richie Williams
  • Thomas Rongen
  • Devon McTavish
  • Ben Olsen
  • Ronald Cerritos
  • Geoff Aunger
  • Clint Peay

The celebration culminated in the final match at RFK, as D.C. United took on the New York Red Bulls, losing 2 – 1 to the Red Bulls.  Fans lingered for a special post-game ceremony immediately following the United vs. Red Bulls match.

That weekend ended D.C. United’s run at RFK. Next year, the club will call the Audi Field, their new home.  The new 20,000-seat stadium is being constructed at Buzzard Point and includes 31 luxury suites.

Thanks for the memories, D.C. United!
