DC United players' latest training facility partnership now comes with a spa, pool and celebrity chefs.
The team entered into a five-year partnership with The St. James, a sporting complex in Virginia, the club announced on Tuesday.
“We’re excited to partner with The St. James, the premier destination for sports and wellness in the region,” Andy Bush, D.C. United Chief Revenue Officer, said in a statement. “We wanted to give our first-team access to expertise, services and facilities that would give them the best platform to compete on the field. The St. James has been a great partner to us throughout the season and has been integral to our team’s early success in 2019. Our partnership with The St. James will allow us to continue our upward trajectory and fuel the chase to bring trophies back to the District.”
The partnership will allow the access to performance strength and conditioning, injury prevention and wellness services for all team personnel. The facility also has the only FIFA regulation sized indoor pitch in this area.
D.C. United is coming off a 2-0 loss to New York City FC earlier this week.
Their record currently sits at 2-4-2 and they have a chance to improve their win column total on Wednesday when they hit the road to take on the Columbus Crew.
