WASHINGTON - After a dramatic showdown over who has the rights to the supporters section in Audi Field came to a head, a chastened D.C. United offered La Barra Brava, La Norte and the District Ultras premium seats in RFK Stadium for the 2018 season.
"We care about our supporters groups and that is why we've excluded three of them from the supporters section and exiled them to RFK stadium," stated Tom Hunt, President of Business Operations. "They seem to love it there so we are just going to ensure that they are seated exactly where they love to be and we can continue in our quest to ensure that our supporters groups are in partnership with our ideal demographic."
The news broke recently when it was announced that the Screaming Eagles would have exclusive rights to the Audi Field supporters section and would be the only supporters group selling tickets for the section.
When asked whether this was fair for the other supporters groups that stood by their side over the past 22 years the Screaming Eagles stated, "Who?"
D.C. United fans who stand with La Barra Brava, La Norte and the District Ultras state that the front office is using a partnership between it and the Screaming Eagles to isolate the three groups and stop them from existing, but the front office says it couldn't be farther from the truth.
"We don't want them to stop existing, we just want them to stop coming to the games. See the difference? That's why we are opening up the lower bowl of RFK to whomever wants to come see the nothing that is put out every week. It'll be just like the 2013 season but without the US Open Cup."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as the Screaming Eagles and D.C. United front office backpedal and claim they were misunderstood.
