Keep D.C. United Releases Fact Sheet

1

Keep D.C. United, the volunteer group of fans, District residents, business owners, and others formed in 2011 to back D.C. United’s search for a permanent home in Washington, D.C., has released a fact sheet intended to show a stadium at Buzzard Point is the right deal for the District and the one that residents want.

The document is available as a PDF that easily fits on one page and can be brought to any upcoming meetings and forums you may be attending to show support for the stadium. Local officials hearing from residents and fans is especially important to making the stadium deal a reality. Speaking of which, an excerpt from Keep D.C. United's Take Action page:

Stadium opposition is organizing two forums over the next week to discuss the stadium deal between the District and D.C. United. The leader of the opposition has said that "there’s not a lot of enthusiasm" for the stadium – let’s show him how wrong he is!
