DC United will open their season up at home tomorrow night against the Columbus Crew. After an off-season overhaul of players, DC United will field nearly a full starting eleven of players who were not on DC’s roster last season. After finishing with the worst record (3-24-7) in MLS history (previously held by Chivas USA with a record low four wins,) DC will be flying high. With a heavy veteran presence and a recently acquired trophy, DC United will start the season firing against the Crew.
DC United suffered yet another loss this season extending their winless streak to eight games, this time to fellow whipping boy Toronto FC. DC United fell 4-1 after fielding a squad of mostly reserve players before their match of the season against Real Salt Lake for the US Open Cup Final. DC United placed six players in their starting XI under the age of 23, including Collin Martin (18) and Michael Seaton (17, MLS Debut).
