D.C. United to take on Hollywood (United)

D.C. United is honoring former star Marco Etcheverry Saturday with a testimonial game pitting its 1997 MLS championship team against Hollywood United, a team of former pro and celebrities.

The game will be played before the final MLS regular-season game of the season between United and the Columbus Crew.

The 1997 championship team will feature John Harkes, Jeff Agoos, Richie Williams, Raul Diaz Arce, Brian Kamler, David Vaudreuil, John Maessner, A.J. Wood, Mark Simpson, Scott Garlick and Tom Presthus.

Hollywood United features such players as former French World Cup champion Frank Leboeuf, who now lives in Southern California and has been working on one of the groups seeking to get an MLS expansion team in Seattle. Among those confirmed to take part in the game for Hollywood United are former MLS stars Tab Ramos, Eric Wynalda, Alex Pineda Chacon, Mauricio Ramos and Richard Gough.

Scheduled to join these soccer luminaries will be "Without a Trace" star Anthony LaPaglia, Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell and Hootie & the Blowfish drummer Jim Sonefeld, a former college star at South Carolina.
