DC MLR Team Taking Season Ticket Deposits

The future of the Washington, D.C. Major League Rugby team moved once step closer to fruition after the team announced that it was taking season ticket deposits. The team doesn't have a home yet (we are putting our money on the Maryland SoccerPlex but the team says it will be inside the beltway) or have a spot on the MLR website but it's going to happen either in 2019 or 2020. You can put down a $20 deposit that is refundable for 180 days. It will help the team show the folks at MLR that there is interest.  The link to put down a deposit is here.

DC joining the league will give the competition an increased presence on the East Coast. New York is set to join next season (they are actually on the website) and the buzz has always been that the Ontario Arrows will be in the competition as well. Whether the league can sustain that type of expansion and keep a strong playing pool is is question. New York and Ontario will be fine but any other team that joins might struggle. It is also unclear if DC will be playing an exhibition schedule like New York and Ontario.
