[MLS] According to various media reports, MLS's D.C. United could get the new Washington, D.C., stadium it has been looking for if a plan by Mayor Adrian M. Fenty moves forward.

Fenty met with the D.C. Council on Wednesday and reportedly proposed to build a $200 million soccer stadium in the Poplar Point area of D.C. and use public funds to pay for the bonds that would finance the project.

Such a move would represent an about-face for Fenty, who broke off discussions with Victor B. MacFarlane, the head of D.C. United's ownership group, last July. The MLS club has since been exploring opportunities in suburban Maryland.

Fenty is expected to announce at a press conference on Thursday that a firm has been selected for the $1 billion development of Poplar Point, along the Anacostia River.

The proposed 27,000-seat soccer stadium would replace RFK Stadium as the home of D.C. United.
