“When we made the decision to build a soccer-specific stadium in downtown Washington, D.C. it was our vision for it to become an iconic sports venue, one of the top stadiums in Major League Soccer, and have it create lifelong memories for the members of our community. To accomplish this, we knew we needed to host unique year-round events that would unite our wonderful city,” said Jason Levien and Stephen Kaplan, Co-Chairmen of D.C. United. “Since our opening in 2018, we have hosted several different sports, including D.C. United matches, other men’s and women’s professional soccer matches, HBCU college football games with our partners at Howard University, lacrosse championships, as well as the upcoming match featuring FC Bayern Munich, one of the world’s most recognized soccer clubs.
