  DID YOU KNOW?

  • This will be the 15th consecutive season D.C. United head coach Ben Olsen has been involved with the capital club. He began as a player in 1998, and became head coach in 2010.
  • Longtime Houston Dynamo striker Brian Ching recently agreed a deal to become a player-coach for Dominic Kinnear's side.
  • This will be the first year since 2010 that D.C. United has not opened its season with a home fixture.
