To support D.C. United’s playoff run, Events DC has illuminated the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in a red glow with the team’s logo. D.C. United travels to Red Bull Arena for the second leg of the MLS Eastern Conference Semifinals to face the New York Red Bulls tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.

“This is a big game for D.C. United and we want them to know they have the city’s support for tonight’s game and throughout their playoff run,” said Gregory A. O’Dell, Events DC president and CEO.

United hosted the first leg of the semifinals on Saturday, November 3 at RFK Stadium, and played to a 1-1 draw in the two-game, total-goal series. Saturday's win was their  first Eastern Conference Finals appearance since 2006.
