City And Team Owner Review D.C. United Stadium Issue

Wednesday March 14th, 2012

D.C. United’s stadium situation has recently been seriously evaluated by the District and owner, Will Chang, according to the Washington Post.

“Discussions are moving forward. I appreciate what the city has done in support of the club and I feel good the city is very interested in wanting to keep us in the District.” Said Chang in an interview with the Washington Post.

MLS commissioner Don Garber has repeatedly said that the club’s current situation, at RFK is unsustainable and if the team is not relocated to a better facility than they could be moved out of the city. One of the possible locations that the team and city are evaluating is Buzzard Point near Nationals Park.

The Buzzard Point location “remains a possibility,” Chang said. “Buzzard Point is the better location because of the opportunity for commercial development as part of the project. The only other potential location that  has been discussed is a proposal to move the team closer to Baltimore, but as of right now the Buzzard Point location seems to be more realistic, according to the Washington Post.
