Opening Day... On the Road

We know two games of the schedule now... At Colorado (now featuring Herculez Gomez and Ugo Ihemelu, aka "The Mediate Leg-Breaker") on April 7. The game will be nationally televised in order to show the USA television audience the impressive nature of Dick's...Sporting Goods Park. I know... that joke has been made many times before, and will probably be made many more.

The home opener is against Kansas City on April 14, featuring the Wiz's new head coach (and DCU alumish) Curt Onalfo. Not a great opener, but at least one that promises some interest in a "Let's see what this guy does" sort of way. Is this a Gansler-esque team of exquisity boring soccer, or a team with a new character? Yup... trying to work myself into a lather for this game isn't happening. More excited about the Germantown Soccerplex game in February.

Best thing about the opener is the road trip possibilities!

There surely will be a nice SE, BB, LN contingent at "The Phallus" on April 7th!

Since we're playing a Honduran team, it's possible that the game will be at RFK, not Germantown, to accommodate the Olimpia fans. This hasn't yet been determined.

yeah I thought the general concencious was that the Olimpia home leg was at RFK...?

Am I that out of it? Checking the DCU Site... I see no formal announcement yet. Hmmmm... Well, perhaps it will be @ RFK.

Goff seems to think that the Olimpia match will be at RFK as well.

D: Check the press release you linked to about the opening games. It says that the Olimpia game will be at RFK at the very end.
