MLS CHAMPS TO PLAY HISTORIC MATCH IN EGYPT

D.C. United will make the first appearance by a Major League Soccer team in Egypt when the two-time champions face that country's most decorated club, Al-Ahly, in Cairo on May 5.

The match, scheduled for the 100,000-seat National Stadium, will launch an Egyptian-American festival designed to attract U.S. tourists to Egypt.

Al-Ahly has won 26 national championships, including four in a row.
