D.C. United will christen its new, 20,000-capacity stadium, Audi Field, on July 14 against the Vancouver Whitecaps. The venue is located in Southwest Washington, two diagonal blocks from Nationals Park.

Heavy rains this spring hampered construction, but the project remains on schedule, officials said. The grass was rolled out last Wednesday, six days early.
