D.C. United to become P.G. United?

P.G. United? Co-Owner May Move D.C. Soccer Team to Prince George’sThe Post
Washington’s most successful franchise of the last decade or so appears to be headed to suburban Prince George’s County, Md. D.C. United, winner of 4 MLS Cups had been trying to build a soccer stadium at Poplar Point, across the Anacostia River from Nationals Park, but D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty balked despite a hefty contribution from ownership. DCU even got Marion Barry (Ward 8) on board. You can get some perspective from the D.C. United fanbase over at DCenters.

I don’t know if this is posturing by DCU or if they really plan on heading to Maryland, but I would not blame them. Still, moving the team out of The District is not the ideal scenario for them. I have been to all of one D.C. United match, but I am inclined to go again. Having to go all the way out to P.G. County is a deterrent.

Post reporter David Nakamura is chatting about the proposed P.G. County stadium for United right now.
