About Audi Field
Washington DC has some pretty respectable pro sports teams, and these teams all deserve their own arenas to play out of. The city’s hometown soccer heroes, Major League Soccer’s DC United, is part of that fine upstanding tradition of Beltway sports, and Audi Field, the home of DC United in the neighborhood of Buzzard Point, is a fitting home for this top-flight soccer team.
History of Audi Field
Audi Field opened its doors to the public in 2018, making it one of the newest soccer-specific stadiums in the MLS. Yet the planning and construction phases associated with Audi Field stretch back years before that, thanks to DC United’s quest to find the perfect site for their own venue that they wouldn’t have to share with other local teams like the Washington Nationals. Planning began back in 2004, with the team submitting a number of construction site bids to the city but they kept getting rejected. It wasn’t until 2011 that a site would finally be selected – meanwhile, construction wouldn’t actually start until 2017!
What’s So Great About Audi Field Events?
As one of the newest soccer-specific stadiums constructed in the United States, Audi Field has some great modern amenities. With a 20,000-seat capacity, this open-air stadium is located within walking distance of not one but two Metro stations, offers a bike valet service, a bevy of MVP suites, and features a canopy so games are played rain or shine. It’s a fitting venue for one of the league’s premier charter franchises, to be sure!
