D.C. United will start the season against the worst team in MLS last season.

D.C. United will start the season against the only other MLS team left in the 2014-2015 Concacaf Champions League: the Montreal Impact. The teams will open their seasons at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium on Saturday, March 7 at 3 PM in the afternoon. The game will not be nationally broadcast, so you should get yourself to the stadium to see the penultimate (probably) home opener left at RFK Stadium. Fabian Espindola won't be able to get his own revenge against Felipe, but hopefully his teammates will be able to do that for him.

The Impact were the worst team in MLS last season, and so they will be a good opponent for a D.C. United team looking for their first season opening win since 2011, the game in which Josh Wolff tore off his shirt and Charlie Davies scored twice. The entire season will start off with the LA Galaxy hosting the Chicago Fire on Friday, March 6; another interesting games that opening weekend include Orlando City SC vs. NYCFC on Sunday. You can see the full list of opening weekend games at mlssoccer.com.

D.C. United's week three game has also been announced: on Sunday, March 22 the Black and Red will travel to Harrison, New Jersey, to take on the New York Red Bulls. That game will almost definitely be nationally televised, as Sunday is when ESPN and Fox Sports 1 have committed to showing back-to-back MLS games at 5 PM and 7 PM.

What do you think of the opening slate of games?
