RFK to host 2007 MLS Cup

Washington DC will get to play host to MLS's biggest game next season as RFK has been named the host of the 2007 final. This will be the third time the stadium has hosted the finals (1997 - DC 2-1 Colorado, 2000 - KC 1-0 Chicago).

I'm a little surprised that with all the soccer stadiums available that they would go with RFK, but perhaps the league is hoping to make a statement with this game. The last time the final was played in RFK, almost 40,000 fans showed up. If they could build on that, it would be an impressive display.

Also, an impressive display of that type might help the club and any future owners finally secure a stadium deal of their own.
