Join us on Sunday, August 4th at the new DC United soccer stadium called Audi Field (located near Nationals Park). We’ll gather at 4:00 PM at the “Premium Entrance” next to Gate A and the Ticketmaster Box Office. You don’t want to be late as we will immediately walk down to the field and take an EO DC group photo together! After the photo, we will begin our VIP tour of the stadium. We'll see areas of the stadium that most people don’t get to see and don’t have access to. After the tour, we’ll all gather for two separate 30-minute talks and Q&A sessions – one from a member of the ownership/management side of the team and one from the coaches/players side of the team.
After, we will enjoy food and drink and watch DC United take on their arch-rival, the Philadelphia Union, which starts at 7:30 PM. Currently, Philadelphia is in 1st place in the MLS Eastern Conference with DC United close behind in 2nd place – so this is a big game!! We will watch the game on the field right behind the goal – an incredible view – where there will be a bar with plenty to drink (alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages included) and also plenty of food to eat for dinner, including vegetarian options. After the game, we have a limited number of opportunities for some lucky members (or their kids/spouse) to take part in kicking an actual penalty kick on the DC United Field (penalty kick opportunity limited – to be determined by random lottery and one kick per family).
Again, this is a once-in-a-lifetime event that every member will want to attend and YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS!!
Since space for this event is limited, attendance for no additional fee is limited to a member and a guest (guest can be a spouse/significant other/child/date). You are welcome and encouraged to bring your children, but we ask that you limit child guests to your own children (or children of your spouse) and not childhood friends of your children. After the first two attendees included at no cost, there is an additional child fee of $35 per person with a maximum of six total guests (including member, spouse, children) per member. Babies and toddlers two-and-under are also free and not included in the total attendee limitation.
