"It was quite an experience," defender Patrick Ianni said. "It's always an honor to be able to go and check out the rich history here. It's a great experience I'll remember for a lifetime."
The visit honored the team's 2007 MLS Cup championship, won in Washington, D.C. on November 18, 2007 with a 2-1 victory over the New England Revolution. With this visit, the Dynamo become the first MLS squad to make consecutive visits to the White House.
To celebrate the team's trip and its two consecutive championships, the first 7,500 fans in attendance for the Sunday, June 8 game against Toronto FC at 7:30pm will receive a specially designed Dynamo championship lapel pin like those worn by the team on its White House visit.
