In case you don’t know, the LA Galaxy are set to open up their regular season on Sunday against four-time MLS Cup winners D.C. United.
You might remember that the Galaxy shot ahead of D.C. United in the medal count to become the first team to win five MLS Cups (#FirstToFive) back in 2014 while United’s last title came way back in 2004 when they defeated the Kansas City Wizards, 3-2 at The Home Depot Center.
Ahead of the Galaxy’s match with United, let’s take a look at what life was like when D.C. United last won an MLS Cup.
