DC United Will Play Everton In July 23 Friendly

Coming off a year in which they were one of the worst statistical teams in MLS history, DC United is pulling out all the stops to woo fans back to RFK Stadium. With a friendly against Ajax already announced, a resounding win in their opener already in the books, DC United has now announced that Everton will also be paying a visit this summer. United will play the EPL side, which features United States National Team goalkeeper Tim Howard, on July 23. The team also has a third "special event" planned for season-ticket holders.

"D.C. United takes pride in measuring our club against the best clubs worldwide," United President & CEO Kevin Payne said in a team release. "In Everton, we have yet another world-class opponent visiting RFK Stadium. Our respect for their organization is deep and we look forward to hosting them this summer."

Everton is among the most storied teams in England, having spent a record 108 seasons in the top division. They are currently eighth in the standings.
