[MLS] With Baltimore -- and the NSCAA Convention -- as the backdrop of the 2011 MLS SuperDraft and fans chanting "Baltimore United," MLS Commissioner
Don Garber said a solution to the D.C. United stadium situation was needed soon.
United still plays at antiquated RFK Stadium and efforts to build a stadium in the District or in the surrounding counties have been rebuffed.
A feasibility study has been conducted about building a soccer stadium in Baltimore.
"The team is called D.C. United," said Garber. "They don't have a stadium solution. They need one. They've had very positive discussions here in Baltimore and, if these guys can deliver the right kind of facility, I am sure [owner] Will Chang and [club president] Kevin Payne will look hard at a potential stadium solution. They must have a solution because what they have right now is not working. We've been saying that for years and at some point, they are going to reach the breaking point. I am not saying that is happening tomorrow, but it will happen at some point. We've got to work hard to find an alternative to what is now, which is no alternative in D.C."
