WASHINGTON - D.C. United, today, released an updated rendering of the new Buzzard Point stadium plan.
Reportedly, shifting finances in the D.C. United ownership have mandated that the club revise its original extravagent stadium renderings to something that it can afford. The new field will have mostly grass, some sand, some turf, a slight downhill slope, and stadium bleachers on one side of the field, with player lean-to's on the other side of the field to allow respite from the sun.
"This is going to be the first fully non-contained professional soccer experience in North America," stated D.C. United president Tom Hunt. "This new field will allow our supporters intimate access to the field in a way that makes them seem part of the game. Our lack of seats and stands will be a new marketing feature showing that no one is above the game or the players. This kind of synergy will show that we are the brand of the people."
Reportedly, D.C. United co-owner Jason Levien considered adding more features to the new stadium, but decided to buy Swansea City instead as it offered a, "more vertical integration of profits to my wallet."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as D.C. United tries to figure out if they can afford corner flags or not at the new locaion.
