CARSON, Calif. (Tuesday, August 6, 2013) – Major League Soccer announced today that the game between the LA Galaxy and D.C. United at RFK Stadium will now be played on Saturday, September 14. The game had originally been scheduled for Sunday, September 15.

Time Warner Cable SportsNet and UniMas will continue to broadcast the game, which will kick off at 1 p.m. (PT). Complete local radio broadcast information will be finalized at a later date.

The Galaxy and D.C. United are tied for the most MLS Cup championships in league history, each being crowned champion four times in the first 17 years of Major League Soccer. LA are unbeaten in the last eight meetings with United, going 4-0-4 in that time, though the two sides have not met since a 3-1 Galaxy win at home on March 18, 2012.
