D.C. United will begin individual player workouts on a voluntary basis at Segra Field in Leesburg, Virginia, on Friday, the team announced on Thursday.
Segra Field is home to D.C. United’s USL counterpart, Loudon United. The District’s MLS team will be one of the last to begin the voluntary sessions after the league passed the measure for outdoor facilities on May 6. The delay was due to each team having to comply with sanctions put in place by the state they subside in.
D.C. United can now take part in Loudon as Northern Virginia said it will enter Phase 1 of reopening on Friday. When the team may be able to return to facilities in D.C. such as Audi Field is still unknown, but D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser stated that the city’s Phase 1 of the reopening process would also begin Friday.
Though workouts will be individual to start, there is a chance that group sessions could soon follow. MLS announced on Thursday that teams could begin training with six or fewer players at a time at outdoor facilities, those that do must present plans of action and follow numerous protective measures.
