Out soccer player Robby Rogers will be making his first appearance on the East Coast since signing with the Los Angeles Galaxy. The game will be against DC United in RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. on September 14.

The Federal Triangle Soccer Club (FTSC) and Team DC will be hosting the fourth annual United Night Out! It is expected that a large number of fans on the East Coast will make their way to RFK Stadium to see Rogers play for the first time on this coast.

DC United is working with the local clubs to sponsor the evening. The professional sports team will donate part of each ticket that night to "You Can Play Project' which works to create an atmosphere for LGBT players to come out in sports.

The game starts at 1PM on September 14 enabling New Yorkers and others to make a day trip to Washington, D.C. to see new hero in action. The Washington Blade has more details on the day and activities.
