MLS announced Tuesday all 23 home openers, but where home will be for D.C. United in that game has yet to be determined.

D.C. United will play their first home match of the 2018 MLS season on March 17, against the Houston Dynamo.

United's new state-of-the-art stadium, Audi Field, is still under construction and will not be ready for the start of the 2018 season. The team has not determined where they will play their home matches until the construction of Audi Field is completed.

Major League Soccer also announced that United will play a second home match prior to the opening of Audi Field, but will release the details of that match when the complete regular-season schedules for all teams are announced in January.

United will open the 2018 season March 3 in Orlando and will face Atlanta United FC on March 11.

The 2018 season will be the first season in United's 22-year history it will not call RFK Stadium home.
