D.C. United are on the road to getting a soccer-specific stadium to call home, and on Friday, new images were released to provide a glimpse of what that future home will look like.

The stadium is proposed for a site on Buzzard Point in Washington, pending approval from the local government. The club released seven new renderings of the 20,000-seat stadium plan, including aerial views, and perspectives from eye-level inside and outside the stadium.

The team also publicized the public hearing of the stadium plan with the DC Council, to be held June 26. The team is looking to garner public support in order to help wrap up government approval following a contentious process since originally announcing the stadium plan in July 2013.

A report from last month indicated a deal between the club and city officials was near completion, with the city planning to commit up to $150 million for the building of the stadium.
