D.C. UNITED @ COLUMBUS CREW
SATURDAY, JULY 21, 2012 7:30 EST
Please join the Barra Brava on its annual pilgrimage to Columbus, Ohio to watch our boys score again and again on the Crewzers.
Everyone is on their own in booking a hotel. Here are three popular choices right next to the stadium.
Days Inn Columbus Fairgrounds
(Kind of a dump but it is usually the cheapest hotel – across the street from the stadium)
1700 Clara Ave.
Columbus, OH, 43211
Comfort Suits – Columbus North
(Across the street from the stadum)
1690 Clara Ave
I-71, Exit 111
Columbus, OH, 43211
Holiday Inn Express
(less that .5 miles from the Stadium)
701 E Hudson St
Columbus, OH, 43211
There will not be a bus. We priced out the bus option and frankly it cost as much per person as it would for 1 person driving alone. Most people carpool to the game.
D.C. UNITED @ KANSAS CITY
SATURDAY, AUGUST 11, 2012 7:30 CDT
Join the Barra Brava in Kansas City. This is a great road trip to the nicest stadium in MLS. There is a huge bar/entertainment district right next to the hotel/stadium that has provided countless hours of drinking at the yard house with their 100+ beers on tap or at granite city microbrew, or at Dave & Busters or riding the mechanical bull.
There is no group package, but there are two hotels very close by to the stadium.
Best Western Premier KC Speedway Inn & Suites
(Literally across a two lane access road from the stadium)
County Inn & Suites

Barra Brava FC presents:
2013 SUPPORTERS' CHARITY SHIELD
La Barra Brava’s primary purpose is to support D.C. United with unwavering loyalty. However, we also share D.C. United’s commitment to serving the Greater Washington, D.C. community and wish to increase our efforts not only as a supporters’ group, but also as an organization that values local philanthropy. In the summer fo 2009, Barra Brava FC began the tradition of hosting the “Supporters' Charity Shield Match” as a fundraising event for deserving charitable organizations. The unique idea of a charity game planned, organized, and played by the fans while being supported and attended by the professional players has quickly garnered interest not only among the Barra Brava family but also within the DC United organization and the local media. DC United players such as Jaime Moreno, Bryan Namoff, Juan Manuel Pena, Rodney Wallace, Kurt Morsink, Conor Shanosky have seen their roles reversed as they have attended past events to meet and mingle with the crowd and to support the causes being championed on the field of play by their biggest fans.
With the success of the inagural event came great interest in making the Supporters' Charity Shield an annual event featuring the top players from Barra Brava FC taking the field against top local competition in a friendly match played for the benefit of charity. Past beneficiaries of the Supporters' Charity Shield include the "Wounded Warriors Project," the "Luekemia and Lymphoma Society," and "United for D.C." Each event has been successful in raising a significant amount of money for the represented charities and continue to grow with each year.
Barra Brava FC makes it our goal to be “mas que un club.” With ambitions of one day competing on a national level, we strive to put the strongest and most competitive team of amateur players on the field at all times. In doing so, we also make it a priority to be a part of the community in a way that will benefit our club, La Barra Brava, D.C. United, and the city of Washington, D.C.
Thank you to everyone that has helped make the Supporters' Charity Shield a successful event and here's to greater success in the future!
