DC United to Return to Cary June 14th

On this weekend's Kick This (listen now: streaming or mp3 download), Chris Economides, Managing Partner of Triangle Professional Soccer revealed that DC United will be returning to Cary for a friendly on June 14th. No opponent was announced so I guess we'll have to wait for the full details on that one. DC United returns to SAS Soccer Park where they defeated the Rochester Rhinos 3-2 last summer in a similar exhibition match. The entire Kick This episode is a great listen for both Cary and USL soccer fans. Tim Holt, VP of USL, is a guest along with Economides who both spend a lot of time talking about Cary soccer and the direction of USL. Holt goes on to say that the biggest thing to happen in USL in the last 3 months is NOT the signing of Romario, but the expansion to Cary and how thrilled the USL is about putting a team in our little soccer hotspot. In another nice morsel of info that will interest Triangle soccer fans, Economides suggested that the new team in Cary will have the "Carolina" name. The official club name is yet to be determined as part of their name the team contest. Chris also hints at a special USL event in Cary but stops short of actually confirming that it will be the USL All-Star Game as rumored earlier by Soccer Sam. He even takes time to give a shout out to our supporters club!
