Residents & fans for economic development at Buzzard Point

    1. Petition by

      Keep D.C. United

Uniting the District behind the Mayor’s “One City” vision means accentuating and supporting the things that unite us.

For over 16 years, D.C. United has helped unite the District with its play on the field and service in the community. Development of a soccer stadium at Buzzard Point helps keep D.C. United.

A soccer stadium at Buzzard Point means:

* Jobs and economic growth through construction, retail, and services for a part of town that has too often been forgotten.

* More than just soccer. A stadium would not only host D.C. United and international soccer matches, it could also host high school and college sporting events and community/cultural festivals.

* Economic development done right. Developers would seek community involvement through out process and D.C. United has an unwavering commitment to the community through its many outreach programs such as United Builds, United Read, United Drives and United Soccer Club.

      I have been to RFK to watch the Sounders win the USOC in 2009. The team is a cornerstone in the founding of MLS and relocating them to lose DC United would be a shame.

      While a Sounders fan, I have much respect for DC United and their history and tradition. Would be a MAJOR loss to the MLS and the DC community if they are forced to move or are removed from the league all together.

      I used to live in the area and believe DC United is a viable business for DC, which produces jobs and revenue. It is also the only major sports franchise that has produced championships on the field the past 20 years.
