MOST COMMENTED

D.C. United's Barra Brava and other supporters groups will hold a minute of silence to honor Chico Solares during the 12th minute, from 11:00-11:59, of Wednesday's game against Montreal.

Solares, who was one of D.C. United's strongest supporters, died suddenly Tuesday night. He was one of the elders of the Barra Brava, United's best-known supporters group.

At Big Soccer, United fans remembered Solares' kindness. “You could tell he was proud to be part of the DC supporter family, and that’s how he thought of all of us, as his extended family, even if he didn’t know your name," said one fan. “He was the kindest, most generous person I have ever known," added another. "He lived without regret and fear and truly was the biggest inspiration and greatest friend one could ask for.”
