D.C. United Brings Back The Blackout For MLS Playoff Tickets

With all the talk of D.C. United missing the playoffs each of the previous four seasons, its sometimes too easy to forget that this team actually a long playoff history before that point.

The emotional victory for D.C. United over the Columbus Crew on Saturday night didn't just assure the team a return to the playoffs for the first time since 2007. That win also clinched fourth place in the MLS Eastern Conference for United, meaning that the team will be hosting at least one playoff game at RFK Stadium this season, a place where United hasn't lost since March.

If you were at the match on Saturday night, or if you watched it on TV, or even if you just watched the highlight of the Lewis Neal stoppage time game-winner, then you know how electric a sold-out crowd can be at RFK. Well, the home playoff game will almost certainly be sold-out as well. You can order your tickets here. The date of United's home game won't be determined until after the final game of the regular season against the Chicago Fire, but it will probably take place on either Wed. Oct. 31 (if D.C. finishes in fourth), Sat. Nov. 3 (if D.C. finishes in third, or wins the play-in game on the 31st), or Wed. Nov. 7 (if D.C. finishes in first or second).

To get us pumped up for the game, United released this hype video this week. Oh yes, the team is bringing back a playoff tradition to RFK. Its the return of the BLACKOUT!
