DC United stadium plans gaining energy

Plans for a brand new DC United stadium in Buzzard Point is gaining momentum.

Residents across the eight wards of the city have expressed their interest in the development of a new site by sending more than 40,000 emails to the District of Columbia Mayor and Council members in less than four weeks.

Recent surveys have showed that the proposed plans for the stadium are being supported by the Washington natives which has prompted DC United's chief operating officer Tom Hunt to push on with the plans.

"The message is clear that more and more residents understand and support the details of the stadium proposal," said Hunt.

"We are appreciative of all the District residents that have made their voices heard and who want to see the city move forward with this project."

DC will privately finance and construct the $150 million stadium which will host more than fifty events each year, including headline concerts, cultural events, school-age sports, college soccer, football, lacrosse, and more.
