The MLS’s most successful team, D.C. United, has a new home. Thanks to Audi of America, the team will soon play at a brand new, state of the art stadium called Audi Field.
“We are excited to work with D.C. United and to continue our support of soccer in America as well the community near our Northern Virginia headquarters,” said Loren Angelo, VP of marketing. “This commitment helps Audi connect with passionate soccer fans of all ages and the greater community through unique experiences that continue to elevate their excitement in America’s fastest-growing sport.”
D.C. United plans to break ground on the 20,000 seat stadium before April with the intention of opening the stadium in 2018. Audi Field will have 31 luxury suites, a bike valet, and 500,000 square feet of retail space.
“We are thrilled to partner with such an incredible brand that is not only recognized in North America, but throughout the world,” said Jason Levien, D.C. United Managing General Partner. “We couldn’t think of a better partner to name our stadium and we look forward to forging extraordinary memories for years to come at Audi Field.”
Audi has long sponsored successful soccer teams, like the Bundes Liga’s Bayern Munich, which it has sponsored since 2002. Audi of America, meanwhile, has been the official automotive sponsor of the MLS since 2015, and runs the Audi Player Index, which keeps track of how players are performing.
