D.C. United are one of the 10 charter clubs of Major League Soccer, having competed in every season since the league’s creation. The team, who play out of the RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., are the most decorated club in MLS, with 13 domestic and international titles since its founding in 1995.

Among the titles won by D.C. United are the CONCACAF Champions League, four MLS Cups, and four Supporters’ Shields.
United’s last MLS Cup victory was 12 years ago in 2004, with its last Supporters’ Shield coming in 2007. The last honors bestowed on the team were the regular season Eastern Conference winners in 2014.
The 2014 season saw D.C. United finish with a 17-9-8 record, with their home form being particularly impressive, only losing two fixtures for an 11-2-4 record.
D.C. United were just as impressive at home in 2015 (11-3-3), but a 4-10-3 away record prevented them from finishing higher than fourth in the Eastern Conference and eighth overall.
The club has huge support, thanks to its early years success, and hit the headlines around the world in 2004 when it gave a professional contract to Freddy Adu, who was aged only 14-years-old at the time.

How To Win At DC United Betting
DC United are usually quite a formidable team when they are on home soil, so your best chance of winning at DC united betting is to back them when they are hosting the opposition.
Away from home is where DC United have struggled of late, yet they still often enter their road games as favorites due to their distinguished history. This means their hosts can often have longer than expected odds, which means value for you to take advantage of.
For example, in 2015, when DC United finished fourth in the Eastern Conference, they finished the season with an 11-3-3 home record, but away was nothing short of dreadful with 10 losses and a 4-10-3 on the road record; quite a contrast we’re sure you will agree.
Season-long bets are also good for DC United as they have a good track record of reaching at least the playoffs.
