Chargers Soccer Members,
The Tampa Bay Rowdies have lined up an exciting match to open their 2016 preseason schedule, securing a game against four-time MLS Cup champion D.C. United. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. on Saturday, February 13 at Al Lang Stadium.

Tampa Bay Rowdies fans will get their first look at the revamped roster against one of North America's most prestigious teams. This game is a chance for the green and gold to begin their on-field preparations for the run at the North American Soccer League's Championship Final in 2016.
D.C. United finished fourth in Major League Soccer's Eastern Conference in 2015 and advanced to the conference semifinals.
D.C. United will have plenty to play for, with this match serving as a crucial tune-up test for its CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals series against Mexico's Queretaro FC. D.C. United plays its first leg against Queretaro in Mexico just 10 days after playing against the Tampa Bay Rowdies, so this will be an important match for both teams.
