Faced with the possibility of D.C. United sharing RFK Stadium with a Major League Baseball team in the near future, MLS Commissioner Don Garber said yesterday that a plan to build a medium- sized soccer complex needs to become a priority.
Citing scheduling conflicts and having to play on a surface that would include a dirt infield, Garber said United would have a difficult time sharing 55,000-seat RFK with a baseball team if the Montreal Expos move to Washington next season.
"We would have real challenges making RFK work," Garber said. "That being said, we've got to evaluate all our options and figure out what we can do to ensure that this team continues to be successful here."
