Plans For D.C. United Stadium Already Behind Schedule

D.C. United fans looking to relocate from RFK Stadium may have to wait a little longer. At the end of July, the MLS team announced a plan to move to Buzzard Point. Of course in order to build a stadium, the city would need access to land currently owned by Pepco, a salvage yard and developer Akridge. Mayoral aide Allen Lew was given a November 15th deadline of figuring out the complexities and details of how land swaps with all of those groups would work. Fun fact: that didn't happen. As such, the city council probably won't vote on whether to approve this stadium deal or not until next year. Relax, soccer fans, this doesn't mean that you won't get a new stadium. The process just appears to be moving forward at a much more cautious rate.
