Becks and Co. to Sell out RFK

Tickets for D.C. United's Aug. 9 match against David Beckham and the L.A. Galaxy are on pace to sell out, according to the Washington Times. United officials on Tuesday said that approximately 30,000 tickets had been sold to season-ticket holders, groups and fans who purchased muti-game packages for the game, leaving 12,500 upper-deck seats for $35 a piece for sale to the general public beginning Monday. Another 2,500 premium tickets have been set aside for those wanting to purchase a five-game package which includes the MLS Cup in November.

"We had lofty expectations this game would sell out and we're right on pace to meet that goal," United spokesman Doug Hicks said. As it stands, United is a little more than 5,000 short of exceeding the all-time record for a regular season soccer match (that was not part of a doubleheader): 35,167 in 1999.

Beckham, who is expected to arrive in MLS on another tidal wave of publicity, is expected to join the Galaxy in training in about two weeks and make his debut in a July 21 friendly against EPL giant Chelsea at the Home Depot Center. His first league match will be against Toronto FC at BMO Field on Aug. 5, followed by the Aug. 9 visit at RFK.
