Bill Hamid on Being the Face of DC Scores & the Upcoming 'Soccer in the City' Documentary He Stars in

By Michael M. Clements | June 5, 2019 | People

The day before D.C. United’s home opener—a game won—Bill Hamid is looking stylish on a sunny afternoon at Yards Park.


He’s excited to talk about the season as well as his role as an official ambassador with DC Scores (, a leading provider of afterschool youth programming in D.C. He will be front and center at the organization’s gala, One Night One Goal. He’s also slated to appear in Soccer in the City, a documentary film about the relationship between soccer and inner-city America. “Former D.C. United president, Kevin Payne, taught us ‘win championships and serve the community,’” says Hamid, who was born in Annandale, Va., and became the first D.C. United Academy soccer player to sign with the club. One MLS Goalkeeper of the Year Award and multiple U.S. Men’s National Team appearances later, the 28-year-old is hitting his stride. Currently on loan from Danish club Midtjylland through the end of the 2019 season, he says he will always call the Capital Region home. United fans, meanwhile, hope he will deliver on a championship, too.
