ESPN, which holds the broadcasting rights for the game, said it has granted a permit for two local fans to show the U.S.-England match on June 12.
The fans are the same men who organized the widely-attended snowball fight in Dupont Circle this past winter.
They're calling next weekend's event, "Soccer in the Circle." ESPN said the broadcast begins at 1:30 p.m. Saturday and is scheduled to end around 4:30 p.m. That's just two hours before 10,000 people are expected to flock to the circle for the annual Capital Pride parade.
