If Manchester United were hoping their tour of the United States would improve their brand recognition in the key American market, they might be disappointed this morning.
Because last night, at the FedEx Field for their pre-season friendly against Inter, it seems those responsible for operating the scoreboard were not too knowledgeable about England's most famous club.
Prior to kick-off in Washington, the locals were being treated to some information on their esteemed guests from the Premier League.
And those looking to learn more about United discovered where they play their home games: Old Traddord, apparently.

Still, it wasn't the only mistake to mar the coverage of United's 5-3 win on penalties, which followed a 0-0 draw.
Even Manchester United's own MUTV channel were at it, getting their team graphic horribly wrong.
Apparently, Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney have reprised the plot of Face/Off this summer, while quite how they mistook Luke Shaw for Antonio Valencia, we'll never know.
