D.C. United to Host Colorado Rapids in Home Opener

Looks like there's some travel involved early on.

D.C. United has announced they will host their 2016 MLS regular season home opener on March 19 at 4:00pm against the Colorado Rapids, and will be broadcast on either ABC 7 or News Channel 8 (exactly who broadcasts the games following the announcement of the new local television deal remains to be seen). The home opener is on the third week of the season, and is on the latest date of the calendar since 2011 when they played Columbus Crew SC in their home opener. The team plays in New England at the Revolution's home opener on March 12 before coming back to RFK on the 19th. The first fixtures are:

As a reminder, this will not be the first game of the 2016 calendar, as D.C. hosts Queretaro in the second leg of the CONCACAF Champions League Quarterfinals after playing at the Liga MX side on February 23. Steve Goff says that the full schedule (and national TV games) will be released on January 7.
