D.C. United Plans To Build 5,000-Seat Stadium For Second-Division Team In Loudoun County
Under the deal, set to go before the county board of supervisors next month, Loudoun County would provide the land and $15M in financing for the project. The proposed complex would include four soccer fields available to the community, a training facility, a youth development program and office space. It would employ about 50 people.
The second-division stadium would be much smaller than Audi Field, the new 15,000-seat D.C. United stadium under construction on Buzzard Point in Southwest D.C. That facility will also include 14K SF of retail and a 40K SF public plaza. It is set to open in 2018.
