MLS News & Notes
*As we told you the other day, D.C. United's Champions League schedule has been set. Today CONCACAF officially announced the dates and times of the preliminary stage, including DCU hosting Chalatenango of El Salvador on July 28 at 8 p.m. at RFK and playing the road leg at Estadio Custcatlan in San Salvador a week later at 10 p.m. ET. (Chalatenango is from a city of 30,000 in northern El Salvador but will play this game in the capital city.)
*New York Red Bulls defender Mike Petke was suspended an additional two matches and fined another $500 by MLS "for inappropriate conduct and comments made toward the officiating crew" in the June 13 match against Toronto. He sat out one game for the initial red card and, as a result of today's ruling, will also miss tomorrow vs. Toronto and Saturday vs. Columbus.
*As expected, Toronto has finalized the signing for Canadian national team forward Ali Gerba, who most recently played for MK Dons in England's third tier. He won't be eligible to play until the MLS transfer window opens July 15.
