DC United to Play in South American Club Championship
Once again DC United has been invited to play in the super prestigious Copa Sudamericana, which along with the Copa Libertadoras serves as the continental club championship for South America. DC United participated in the 2005 edition and was defeated 4-3 on aggregate Universidad Catolica of Chile after blowing a 2-0 lead in the away leg. The Tournament takes place this fall right after the MLS Cup Final. DC United is the only MLS club ever invited to play in the event.
