Adam Najem was named to the USL Team of the Week after notching a goal and an assist. Have to think it’s a matter of when, not if, he gets a shot at the #10 job with the big league squad.

A VAR test will be performed at the Union’s next game and at games around the league. If the tests go well, VAR could be implemented in MLS as early as later this season.

Get to know D.C. United.


Bethlehem Steel beat Harrisburg 1-0 on a goal from Chambers assisted by Najem. The starting lineup featured a back line that I think some would like to be getting MLS time together.

West Chester United’s U-23 squad won the USASA Region 1 championship.

The Union Academy season has concluded and the teams are gearing up for the playoffs.

Cory Burke will be joining the Jamaican National Team for the Caribbean Cup.

    Dear Union.
    …so I can enter the trance state of likeminded movement, parasympathetic ebb and flow of the ocean. This is not asking too much. It’s not.
    How this starts by the way is teaching the goalie to use his feet with set tactical solutions for building out of the back. I offer a video of 12 year olds doing it at 3four3 and game footage of the same 12 year olds playing against the greatest youth teams in the world to show it IS POSSIBLE. .
    Thank you.
