First, again: United takes SUM U17 Cup

Commence insufferable bragging.

When it comes to MLS teams winning something for the first time, DC United keeps seeming to be the first to do it. First MLS Cup, of course, was ours. First MLS team to win a US Open Cup? Yeah, we did that in 1996. First MLS team to win a US Open Cup? Same year, also giving us the first double. First MLS team to win a CONCACAF Champions Cup? 1998, DC United. First reserve title? 2004. Now we can add the First MLS Team to win the SUM U17 Cup. See, that "Tradition" banner is not just a reminder of history, it is also prophecy.

Of course, we still need to be the first MLS team to win the Superliga, and the first team to win the Copa Sudamericana. So there's work to be done. Gentlemen, look to the youth, and be inspired, and reminded.

we were also the first (and only) team to win the Interamerican cup.

Were we the first to win the Atlantic Cup?

If Vegas gets a team, DC will have some real competition to be the first to get D Cups.
