Loudoun United FC broke ground on the new stadium site in Leesburg, VA., on Tuesday, March 26. Members of the community, board of supervisors and county executives gathered at the site to watch the monumental moment in not only the club’s history, but the county’s.
Loudoun County have been working since October 2018 to clear the land for the first 5,000 seat stadium in county history. Loudoun United will play their inaugural match at the venue on Friday, August 9 against the Charlotte Independence. There will be 12 home games played at the stadium in 2019. Starting in 2020, the full 17-game home schedule in the USL Championship will be played at Loudoun United Stadium.
The stadium will be located at Philip A. Bolen Park in Leesburg, Va., and seat 5,000 people. The stadium will not only be home to Loudoun United FC matches, but will be positioned as a community gathering place that can be utilized for school graduations, concerts, and festivals.
