Wiki

D.C. United is an American professional soccer club located in Washington, D.C. that participates in Major League Soccer, the United States' top-tier soccer league. The team's home field is the 45,596-seat Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium, owned by the District of Columbia and located on the Anacostia River. The team has proposed building a new 24,000-seat soccer-specific stadium at multiple possible sites in the Washington metropolitan area. The team is owned by the consortium D.C. United Holdings.

Considered the most successful club in American soccer, D.C. United has won the U.S. Open Cup twice and holds the record for most MLS Cups and MLS Supporters' Shields with four apiece. D.C. United was the first club to repeat either the MLS Supporters' Shield or the MLS Cup back-to-back. In 1998 D.C. United became the first American club to win the CONCACAF Champions' Cup and the Copa Interamericana. Internationally, D.C. United has played in numerous CONCACAF competitions, including the recent 2008 CONCACAF Champions' Cup and 2008 SuperLiga. They are also the only US-based club to ever participate in a South American CONMEBOL competition, playing in the 2005 and 2007 editions of the Copa Sudamericana.

Players such as Jaime Moreno, Christian Gómez, and Marco Etcheverry are among the team's most successful stars. D.C. United has a strong fan base, with three supporters' clubs and one of the highest attendance averages in Major League Soccer. The club's official nickname is the "Black-and-Red" and home uniforms are black and white with accents of red. The team's name alludes to the "United" appellation commonly found in the names of soccer teams in the United Kingdom and elsewhere.
