D.C. United To Play Paris Saint-Germain At RFK Stadium On July 28

D.C. United has found a replacement for Juventus for their game in the Herbalife World Football Challenge. The Black and Red will play host to Paris Saint-Germain of French Ligue 1 at RFK Stadium on July 28.

The French team finished second this season with a record of 23-5-10, qualifying for the 2012-13 UEFA Champions League group stage. Their manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has been in charge of teams such as A.C. Milan, Chelsea FC and Juventus. One of their most notable players is Argentinian Javier Pastore, nicknamed 'El Flaco', winner of the 2010 Serie A Young Footballer of the Year. In 33 games with PSG, he has scored 13 goals.

The ticketing situation, addressing those that have season tickets or had tickets to the originally scheduled game against Jueventus, was brought up in the press release announcing the game.

D.C. United Season Ticket Holders possessing Special Game 1 tickets remain set. There is no need to exchange tickets and refunds against these passes are not available. Season Ticket Holders may also purchase additional priority tickets by calling D.C. United customer service. Patrons holding paid tickets to D.C. United vs. Juventus, originally scheduled for July 28, do not need to exchange, as those tickets will also provide entry to the PSG match. However, exchange of these tickets for reprinted ones with proper opponent, date and time are available via the outlet of original purchase. Refunds for these tickets are also available at the outlet of original purchase.

People can purchase tickets to the game by visiting the official team website or calling 202-587-5000.

D.C. United-Juventus Friendly Officially Off, United Looking For Another Opponent

The Herbalife World Football Challenge may have one less matchup on its schedule. Jueventus FC has officially pulled out of the July 28 match, leaving their opponents, D.C. United, scrambling to find a new opponent.

The United officially released a statement confirming that Jueventus has pulled out of the matchup, but that negotiations are underway for a replacement team.

We've received word that Juventus FC will no longer be playing in Washington, D.C. While we're disappointed with the news, D.C. United is already in discussions with another, major European team to fill that date and will share opponent and ticketing details as a deal is finalized.

The question has to be at this time is what team can the United get under such short notice. Though they say that they are in negotiations with another team, how will Jueventus' sudden exit effect negotiations for the new matchup?
